The Fiber Optic MIDI Controller (FOMC) uses fiber optic cables to make modular connections between light sources and sensors, allowing the performer to make tactile routings of synthesizer control signals. Each control signal causes the connecting cable to briefly illuminate, in turn helping the performer play the synthesizer “patch” by clearly highlighting the routing of each connection and timing of each signal as it operates. The illumination also acts as a tightly synchronized visualization of the music, as the illumination itself is the control signal creating it, rather than a representation of the music.
High power LEDs communicate in two ways: Through pulses, acting as gates within analog synthesizers, and through brightness, acting as control voltage, another standard within analog synths.
Don't hesitate when you customize your sneakers by AR!
This is a mobile AR experience that enables people to do customizing their sneakers more easily. During having a number of interviews with sneaker-heads, we realized that they have been hesitating to paint or paste some elements to their sneakers. Moreover, customizing sneakers is not easy in reality in terms of time, cost consuming and artistic output. Consequently, we believe our projects will be a great solution for them, augmenting reality which enables them to custom their shoes without any hesitations. This experience is a new way that allows users to try physical interaction with real objects by AR.
Midway caricature art is traditionally done by human beings. But, what would a caricature artist from the future look like?
Robotic. Definitely robotic.
CaricaTron takes your picture, converts it to a caricature using computer vision, draws you with a robotic arm and posts the caricature to @helloCaricaTron on Instagram.
Dear Younger Me invites people to share their joy, their love, their advice, their regrets, and their heartbreak with their younger selves via text. Each message is printed out onto a continuous feed of paper, slowly filling the space and allowing passersby to read messages others have sent to themselves.
Moving lights is a jewelry set – earrings, a sash, as well as a headpiece that will light up when a person moves. It is meant to accessorize a dancer or person in theater's movement during a performance. This set is made up of Swarovski crystals, embellished with led lights, as well as vibration sensors. This design holds other possibilities, as in the future it can be reworked to be used in accessible designs, especially for those who may not have use of their arms, but can use their chest and neck to communicate.
We have developed an installation consisting of 10 tubes split across 4 base units. The project – created for the popup windows class – can be displayed as a stand-alone unit Without a window. The project is currently working!
We intend to add sound from speakers as another feedback mechanism now that it is not behind glass.
