Craft Advanced Research Projects Agency CARPA / CARPA. is in residence at PNCA. Their project runs parallel to Switzerland's EToy.
They are a parody of ARPA/DARPA, a USA Department of Defense agency with essentially unlimited resources to pursue new technologies which the military could use. ARPA/DARPA created the early space program and they created the Internet. They have been seeding robotics and self-driving cars. They are great to follow if you are curious. On the other hand it sad to have the brightest people in the country thinking up better ways to kill people at great expense.
So CARPA arranges new crafts and crafts intervention in good world changing with a sense of humor too, and on a minimal budget!
This afternoon they complete their residency with participation by PNCA students and you.
They definitely win the copywriting award for the month:
