Interactive “Architecture”

Around the Windows

Around the Windows

Created by the Graffiti Research Lab, which is committed to creating new technologies/applying old technologies in new ways to promote, er, graffiti art. In this case, they demonstrate the idea that digital projections can interact with the surface up which they are projected. The technology itself isn’t terribly innovative or groundbreaking, but this specific application is quite amusing.

Interactive Ball:

The inflated ball is created by Tangible Interaction (I think); it has a light-emitting diode(LED) in it and reacts to different pressure with different lights (depending on one’s customization). One can also connect multiple balls to a central computer in order to have a coordinated input/response.

Others:

SWAN: System for Wearable Audio Navigation Developed by the Psychology Department and the College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology, it gives audio instructions to the wearer to his pre-determined destination by computing the wearer’s location with information from a variety of sensory inputs.

    I found another interesting bar counter surface with similar networking graphics. I enjoy the plasma-like/sci-fi interactions between illuminated areas of the table.

    This is a neat calendar that constantly shreds calendar pages printed on a roll over the courses of their respective 24-hour days. It makes the observer think a bit, but isn’t as interactive as some other pieces….

    There is a simplified version of a medical EEG used to monitor the brain activity in the system to allow a user to control the position of a ball. This is to be used in the context of a toy that mimics the “Force” a la “Star Wars”. I think that EEG or EMG signals could be fun to process and use for controls.
