Find and analyze an example of physical computing with a goal that is artistic or design based, less than a page and with links to the original. It should only take 30-60min. Youtube is a great place to start, so are NYU ITP and IDeATe. Due noon 7 September so I have time to review them before class.
If a project is an exercise or etude for class it doesn’t qualify for this exercise. What you’re looking for has to do something with interaction, preferably vaguely interesting, even if it’s just playing/entertainment. Sandnoisedevice meets plenty of engineering requirements but it doesn’t hold long term interest as it’s more about the technology than the interaction experience or functionality. If I could add something to this, it would a game where you generate music, something like Rez. Or perhaps add a second device and use the two as consoles in a music competition game like DDR.
A sample format:
- basic description, elaborate on a title or use
- what is it supposed to do?
- how does it do this?
- does it work?
- how would you change it?
