This project reflects my own thoughts and emotions regarding the relationships in my life. It basically asks the audience to judge other people based on whatever they may know about them. It brings to mind the idea of dating sites and apps such as Tinder and even the whole process of people ‘liking’ things on Facebook and other social Read more →

INTERACTIVE II: SEMESTER PROJECT - Phantom

Chou

Thursday, Apr 23, 2015 - 10:38:34 am

@ Ting Chou

This is an experimental project to trick people into sensing a ghost by seeing and hearing when they interact with the “air”. They only can see the ghost on the screen projected from the top down camera. However, they can’t see the “real” ghost right beside them. This would make them feel skeptical to the environment as well as the feedback.

The Lego Pincher

https://youtu.be/Vr2szkArxp8

This project is to explore on the sense of touch using the phidgets motors.

We came up with the idea of pinching/grabbing stuff by putting it in between the motors.

The motors will move together simultaneously, creating a pinching action.

Using the touch sensor and teabox, user could send a pinch and the other party would receive a ‘pinch’.

The pinchers are Read more →

In this project, we set up a booth where we invite people to get their fortune read by a virtual fortune teller.

Little did they know that we are out to scare them and capture their reaction.

Interactive II - Phidget Assignment - 'Spycam'

Kamarule

Sunday, Apr 12, 2015 - 02:15:01 pm

@ The Anatomy Of Life & Death

Introducing ‘Spycam’! Always wanted to control your friend’s webcam position?! With Spycam, you are able to spy your friend’s private space by invading his space that he doesn’t want you to see!

When one is chatting or skype-ing on video with another, the video is motionless and still. It would be interesting if both parties are able to control each other’s webcam camera Read more →

This stroking finger device mimics the action of a person stroking his/her finger across your skin. I felt that it was apt considering how often we use our fingers to navigate computer screens via mouse or touchpad.

The finger attachment is joined with a loose hinge that enables it to glide across the skin smoothly and also move further than Read more →

Wonderful! I was wondering if this could be used as a torturing device as well! Instead of an eraser, replace it with a knife or a blade. That would bleed nicely! Anyway, love the little mechanism there! This mechanism would be relevant for Cindy/Vivian's drawing devices for their final assignment!
Thanks! Haha yeah I guess it could work as a torture device. Hmmm yeah the mechanism might work because it ensures their drawing tool will always be in contact with the surface but it might not provide enough pressure.

Interactive II - Phidgets - 1. Interactive book 2. A moving skeleton hand

Chou

Tuesday, Apr 07, 2015 - 10:58:54 am

@ Ting Chou

I did 2 parts in this exercise: 1. Interactive book  2. A moving skeleton hand

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bi7luu70PYM

1. Interactive book

The idea is an interactive book which could open and close by itself when your hand is flipping in the air. The bendable sensor controls the feedback, like waving your hand to the device (Imagine you are flipping the book, but it’s in air).  The motor is installed Read more →

@ Ting Chou

In this project we extract the Hip Hop elements such as hip-hop music, scratching, b-boying and the gesture as the instruments. These gestures are then programmed to produce specific sound and clip. We recorded ourself beat-beatboxing and some accapella then proceed to put it in our project.

 

Stepping up and down on the touch sensor will produce the main beat Read more →

Project by Cheong Su Hui and Esmond Heng

This is our musical instrument that consists of 3 different sensors.

This is the explanation:

We made use of EQ, gizmo~ to distort and manipulate with the sound.  Midi was also used to produce notes that could be played together with the music.

@ Esmond Heng

Here’s a quick status update on our semester project!

What we’ve managed to do so far:

– Using Boids2D, we created boids to simulate fish – Combined with the tracking ability of blobs.centroids, the boids follow after a moving target, in our case a walking person – Created a gif image of a moving fish and inserted it to replace the boids – Managed to Read more →

Our group used this as a part of our final project reference. But this website is too awesome. The sounds and music it generated is so melodious.  I guess this is the closest I can be to be a DJ. Definitely worth it to go and have some fun. Click the picture below to try.

@ wphua002

A tray made of 4×4 boxes. Throw a ball in and melody will start playing with matching videos playing on screen.

You are the DJ, mix & mash the way you like it. Record your own riff if desired.

This fun, interactive staircase mimics a piano, and plays the corresponding note when people climb the stairs. Each note corresponds to a single step.

We took the idea of people walking to create music and emulated the major scale (Do, Re, Mi, Fa, …) into 8 sections. When the Read more →

What does different fruit sound like?

@ Agua

1. Red Strawberry: Chinese Bamboo Flute

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5cJeDDWy3Y

characteristic of the instrument: high-pitch, lucid and vivid, vivacious and leaping rhythms

2. Orange Carrot: drum? A bongo maybe?

Anthem of Carrot Day:

3. Yellow Bananas reminds me of Carribean sea but something a bit heavier, which best described by the tone of a bass trumpet; as an instrument trumpet is warm and rich, breathy and burnished.

very interesting concept. But I feel that giving each fruit a sound is very subjective. How do you think you can make it more objective in a sense that the sound is something we can relate to?

Final Project

@ Ting Chou

This is our second concept. Our goal is to create bubbles/particles and let it float around within the screen. We will add the sound effect, when we move the bubbles, the tune of the sound will change. Reference:

Group 1 : E.C.V.P

Esmond, Cindy, Vivian, Pearlynn

The Concept:

Our group will be coming up with a interactive projection that transforms the staircase into a giant fish tank.

We will be making use of motion tracking such that when a person moves through, fishes follow.

But when the person stops, the fishes swim away.

Purpose:

This will encourage people to use the stairs more instead of the lift, Read more →

Interesting and fun! However, does this projection only happens at night? As the staircase in ADM is next to the window glasses, the projection might not be strong to visually show it clearly as I understand that the projector we have in ADM is not so strong.

Emulation Assignment Rough Concept

Esmond, Pearlynn

Concept

Our concept is based on the movement of the viewer. Using face detection, the viewer when stationery will see his/her face covered with fuzziness/dark glitches around him. In order to get rid of the fuzziness and see his face clearly, he must move around so that the “fuzziness” doesn’t consume him. This idea is based on the game ‘Tilt To Read more →

Presentation Date: 18th November 2014

Concept 1: 

By translating the intensity level of the game into the music/visual, it allows us to make the game itself more exciting.

We will be expanding the idea on the game of twister by incorporating 4×6 spots available places for the players to place their hands and feet upon. There will be 4 different colours Read more →

The main concept of our group project is ‘face blur’ .

It’s like duplicating faces in a short time, like 1/5 sec duplicate one face. Then the faces will be overlapped on the previous ones.Faces are produced at certain intervals. The body is motionless, but the head needs to turn. So when Read more →
