»Space Junk Spotting« 2006, is a project composed of mechanical and programming equipment linked to a database at a U.S. government-owned space observatory; this database contains the fullest possible data on the extent of the pollution and presents remarkable scientific methods for determining the position of space junk. In this way, the wider Internet public is offered a folder of information about space debris, which is strewn across the popular three-dimensional interface Google Earth. The tactical potential of this catalogue is the possibility it provides for finding a creative and constructive solution to the problem of reusing material whose position in usable orbits is already determined, without the enormous initial costs that arise whenever rockets are shot into space.

»Beggar 2.0« another project by Saso Sedlacek is a robot for the materially deprived in Tokyo. It is made of old electronics and computer spare parts. The original 1.0 was tested in Slovenian shopping malls where it is forbidden to beg, but no such rule was made for robots. The new upgrade version of Beggar robot made at IAMAS institute in Japan was tested in the beginning of July 2006 on Tokyo streets where begging isn’t really a frequent phenomena and where interface communication is ubiquitous.Video.
