There are lots of very cool sounding intern jobs working with artists at eyebeam. For example:
Carmen Trudell and Jennifer Broutin — These NY based architects would like someone with experience in basic mechanics and electronics to assist in prototyping a DIY device that can be attached to any swinging door as a closure assembly to locally capture and redistribute energy. Applicants should be able to program a microcontroller, wire a simple LED assembly, and work with gears. They should be available to work on Saturdays and occasional weekdays. A good estimate is about 4-6 hours per week minimum.
