Initial sketch #3
We decided to build on our initial sketch #3, where: Gesture = Spinning the phone, leads to Output = Lights will change in colour (Activating Party Mode). We used the “compass” values on ZIG SIM as a value for this gesture.
But upon testing our sketches on Processing with the computer screen, we found out that this interaction was not particularly interesting/special. Therefore we started brainstorming and building on our initial idea.
How our current sketch works is that wherever the participant faces, that part of the LED strip, which is arranged in a circle, lights up.
Like in our initial sketch, we used the “compass” value from ZIG SIM as our variable.
To expand upon our sketch, we made 3 different states, as seen in the video:
State #1: When the participant is facing the same direction as the light.
State #2: When the participant is facing in the opposite direction as the light.
State #3: When the colour of the light changes.
