      x.pose is a wearable data-driven sculpture that exposes a person's skin as a real-time reflection of the data that the wearer is producing. In the physical realm we can deliberately control which portions our bodies are exposed to the world by covering it with clothing. In the digital realm, we have much less control of what personal aspects we share with the services that connect us. In the digital realm we are naked and vulnerable. https://www.behance.net/gallery/17256769/xpose ITP NYU Thesis 2014 Special thanks to: Nancy Hechinger, Ben LIght, Eric Rosenthal, Pedro Oliveira, Talya Stein, Roy Rochlin, Heidi Lee, Rashad Taylor, ITP community, Family & Friends Music: Quantic - Time is the Enemy

        Adam Ben-Dror | www.ben-dror.com | @adambendror Shanshan Zhou | www.behance.net/sszhou www.ben-dror.com/pinokio/ Pinokio is an exploration into the expressive and behavioural potentials of robotic computing. Customized computer code and electronic circuit design imbues Pinokio with the ability to be aware of its environment, especially people, and to expresses a dynamic range of behaviour. As it negotiates its world, we the human audience can see that Lamp shares many traits possessed by animals, generating a range of emotional sympathies. In the end we may ask: Is Pinokio only a lamp? – a useful machine? Perhaps we should put the book aside and meet a new friend. Processing, Arduino, and OpenCV.

        • Super Angry Birds - a Tangible Controller

          Super Angry Birds is a force feedback USB controller for Angry Birds that simulates the feeling of a slingshot. All the controls found in the game are available in this device. You can control the pull, the angle, and of course trigger the special power of the bird. We hacked a motorized fader found in audio mixing consoles to simulate the force you would feel when using a slingshot. We programmed in Max/MSP and Arduino. For controlling the hardware, we used an Arduino-based microcontroller called Music & Motors developed by CIID. This was part of the class on Haptics at CIID run by Bill Verplank and David Gauthier.

          • あ / Ah

            We use the characters in our daily life. And these visual characters have various, context-dependent meanings. In the Japanese system of hiragana, “あ” [ah] is the most flexible character. Despite its simple sound, different inflections can express various human emotions: joy, anger, sorrow, and pleasure. As such, the character of “あ” [ah] must reflect the emotional nuances of its use in the highly context-dependent culture of Japan. People often use this character without realizing its various expressions. To make them know this amazing feature, we proposed an object whose visual shape is the character “あ” [ah]. When people play with the object striking, bending, or rubbing, the various sounds of “あ” [ah] are expressed. Through the communicative possibilities of “あ” [ah], we can learn to appreciate the nuanced relationship between a character and its meaning.

Awards for Excellence at 2012 Asia Digital Art Award. 我々は日々、文字を使って生活している。 文字は、会話や文脈により意味が与えられるため、同じ文字でもその使われる状況により多様な表現を持つ言葉へと変化する。 中でも「あ」は、ふとした瞬間に発する言葉として様々な場面に用いられ、喜怒哀楽といった多様な感情をそれ一文字で表現することが可能である。そのため、世界有数のハイコンテキスト文化に生きる我々日本人にとって特別な文字であると言える。 しかしそういった「あ」は無意識のうちに使われる事が多く、「あ」がもつ表現力の豊かさを理解して用いることはほとんどない。 そこで我々は、“叩く”、“撫でる”、“曲げる”など、体験者が与えたアクションに対し、それに応じた「あ」をフィードバックする、「あ」の形をした立体物を制作した。 この立体物とのコミュニケーションを通して、体験者は直感的に「あ」の持つ価値、ひいては文字と意味との関係性への気づきを得ることができる。 第20回 国際学生対抗バーチャルリアリティコンテスト (IVRC2012) 出展 第18回 学生CGコンテスト 審査員賞 2012 アジアデジタルアート大賞展 優秀賞

                Siri texts “pour me a beer” to Beeri’s Twitter account while Beeri’s onboard Arduino Uno w/WiFi shield polls the Twitter API for any new “pour” commands. Once Beeri sees the tweet, it pours beers for all who are thirsty. Without a doubt, beer is a tool for the creative class.

                  The Happiness Hat is a wearable device that detects if you're smiling and provides pain feedback if you're not. An enclosed bend sensor attaches to the cheek and measures smile size, a servo motor moves a metal spike into the head inversely proportional to the degree of smile. Through repeated use of this conditioning device you can train your brain to smile all the time. This is the first in a series of Tools for Improved Social Interacting. http://www.lauren-mccarthy.com/happinesshat

                    Stop motion form and colour, using light painting techniques. Lighting: Kim Pimmel Sound: Tron Legacy trailers I've been interested in taking my Light Study photo series and evolving them into motion pieces. I shot a lot of footage for a VJ gig for FITC San Francisco. So I edited together those stop motion sequences, mashed up some audio from the Tron Legacy trailers, and out came Light Drive. The video is stop motion, so every frame is an individually shot photograph. Each photograph is a long exposure photo, with exposures reaching up to 20 seconds in some cases. To control the lights, I used an Arduino controlled via bluetooth to drive a stepper motor. The stepper motor controls the movements of the lights remotely from Processing. The light sources include cold cathode case lights, EL wire, lasers and more.

                      This is a game project for S10-05833 - Gadgets, Sensors, and Activity Recognition in HCI taught by Scott Hudson at Carnegie Mellon University. I created a simple version of Super Mario Bros using an 8x8 LED matrix (one color), an Arduino Nano, two buttons for the input (forward and jump), and a piezo sensor hooked to a separate Arduino for the theme song.
