Background
open exhibits, home automation hardware, kissbox

Audience
interactive installation artists, museum installation designers,

User Scenario
Users would visit a site and setup their interface. The interface composed of web elements such as buttons, sliders,x-y pad, etc would be mapped to motors, lights, etc. The user would be able to fine tune the interaction between interactive elements and the output.

Implementation
The input interface software is a combination of html, javascript, sql, and ruby. It will act as a bridge between touch screens and mobile devices to an arduino or computer to control projections. There might be an output interface software that will manage output to the arduino and projections.
