unControllable is a project that consist of 5 hourglasses that plays sound files upon turning them over either side.
Each hourglass triggers a different sound on each side it is turned. When turned together with the others, at the same or different time, it will create different sound combinations.
The project is broken down to 2 parts. The hourglasses and the technical Read more →
Semester project process

I knew from the beginning that I wanted to do something with sound. But I didn’t have the idea of what I wanted to do straight away so I began brainstorming about what I could do that was interesting and maybe fun for a potential user or observer. I thought of a instrument that would Read more →
ume | documentation
Prototype documentation for our semester project, ume.
ume are interactive paired devices meant to subtly connect friends, lovers and family in different locations. It was made using Arduinos, LED bulbs, PIR sensors and ultrasonic distance sensors.
Each ume serves as an avatar of the other user. The ume in location A will correspond to the user in location B and vice versa. It aims Read more →

Here’s my documentation for my Final Project.
Steely is an interactive alarm clock that is made out of ordinary objects in the household. Controlled by Arduino, Steely is programmed to let you wake up with the sunrise every morning.
This is a desk top device that assist to create and experience serenity and practise meditation.
The concept derives from prayer wheels. In Tibet, It’s spun to send prayers out into the universe, cleanse the soul. Prayer wheels are used for meritorious effect such as orally reciting the prayers without reciting the mantra.
Visual metaphors:Light beams coming out from the wheels, portrays it’s purifying Read more →
Semester project: Original pitch
Cornelia Damber HåkanssonWednesday, Nov 16, 2016 - 05:30:26 pm
We would like to read a specific word in some given number of languages. And represent the geographical heritage of that word through a lightning art piece. So for example if Jane says “kärlek” (the Swedish word for love), the colour of the Swedish flag will be reflected in the art piece.
The art piece would be places some place Read more →
Semester project: Fullösning
Jane BertheimMonday, Nov 14, 2016 - 07:27:59 pm
This is our semester project, we call it “Fullösning”. It’s an interactive sculpture, and you can interact with it through sounds. So what it does is that it lights up its wings depending on the sounds amplitude. The smallest wing respond to low amplitudes, the middle one higher amplitudes and the big wing the highest amplitude.
Here is a video that shows Read more →

Arvid LångströmTuesday, Nov 08, 2016 - 08:25:31 pm
Touch of War is our semester project. It’s a simple tug of war based game where instead of pulling a rope, you press a button gently. The goal is to find the correct amount of pressure to apply to the button to tug your way to victory!
So here’s the video we created to showcase our completed project! It describes how Read more →
Semester Project Pitch: Touch of war
Viktor SiegerTuesday, Nov 08, 2016 - 08:20:04 pm
This project was made by Arvid Långström and Viktor Sieger.
We wanted to create an alternative way to compete in a classic competition, namely tug of war. Since the outcome of the original game is always decided by who’s the strongest, we wanted to create a more even playing field in some way. The goal was for all participants compete on Read more →
What was done so far: Hourglass: Getting bottles and cutting them up for the hourglass Lasercutting wood for the base and the gap in the middle of the hourglass
Interface: Gathering some sounds for the hourglasses Having basic alteration of frequency and speed of sounds via Max MSP, through the i-CubeX system.
Used OSC-route to get the data from the i-CubeX system
Issues: Although got a Read more →
