For Interactive Devices Project, I Intended to do it as a solo project so that I could possibly learn more through the exploration process.
After some research, I’ve got 3 general ideas in mind which I might consider:
Could be for Fashion
– Something that look nice
Could be for Entertainment
– Something that is amusing to the user/viewer
Could be for Practical uses
– Something like an Air-condition system
Could be for medical purposes
Could be a totally new instrument that is not available in the market.
Could be a system which plays existing instruments:
– Strum Guitar
– Blow Pipes/Flute
– Ring Bells
Incorporate the pendulum
– Pendulum is a interesting object which produces beats
– is rather amusing
Reads Music sheet and play it automatically
– Could be like a music box
- Magnets have really interesting properties
- Could be a combination of permanent magnets and Electrical magnets.
- Magnetic could result in levitation of objects which are really amusing
Overall, out of the 3 main categories of Wearable, Music Instrument and Magnetic devices, I like the idea of making an musical instrument more and my initial idea is a device which could read music sheets like a music box. I shall explore more on music box in the next research post.
