Prototype: Let there be LIGHT!!

This is a series of LED boxes controlled by keyboard inputs via Arduino. First it wakes up, still a bit tired, but quickly decides to talk to you.

Exhausted and fragmented from this bout of stress, it becomes tired again, eventually going back to sleep.

Rearrange its face as you see fit for an expression of anxiety!

Arduino BOX Prototype

After the Arduino as ISP/ATtiny debacle of last week, last week’s prototype went back to Arduino as a solution while waiting for an actual AVRISP to arrive.

There is only one box here, but the magnets simulate the behavior the box would take on if another box was connected to it. More updates on this soon!

SoundBOXES: Final

The goal of this project was to construct a musical interface. Instead of creating a series of different switches for input that are connected to various actuators, I sought to design an interface in which the input was the actuator. My initial concept was to create a tower (actually towers) of sound. After a few experiments with paper speakers, I was interested in pushing the boundaries of the form and physics.
