Planned and implemented in just one week, “Rice Wipe” is a synthesizer controlled by rice. Below the surface there is a 3 x 3 matrix with 9 light sensors. To control sound in Ableton Live, we used Arduino & Processing to transfer the light value through the synthesizer. We successfully utilized rice to manipulate sounds through the synth, creating a haptic interface in a comprehensive, human way.
