1. Prototype for an outdoor sensor interface

    We're making an outdoor interactive sound installation that will locate five separate sensor interfaces hidden in and around the trees in a public location. In essence, we're surrounding various trees with some great technology to tell (whisper) a story whenever someone passes by. So what are we trying to do ..... we're aiming to surprise and inspire the passer-by (accidental or otherwise). To engage them in a somewhat heightened awareness of their immediate surroundings and the stories they hold, as if the trees or the nature in their world has a voice … It's also a variation of the old thought experiment "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?". If no one walks past the tree, it doesn't make a sound ... Technically there's nothing unusual about the project except that we want the random passer-by to trigger high quality audio from an invisible source, which is something we've never done before. The challenge for us is that the installation is outdoors, not very far from traffic, and needs to be somewhat self-sufficient for the duration (somewhat being the loose operative word here). All of the technical components will be powered by just one Lithium battery, which needs to remain charged for at least 3 to 4 days, so we can pop in discretely and replace it, or alternatively, use a small solar panel so it's truly self-sufficient, but then it gets harder to make the unit invisible, or at least discrete. Apart from the outdoor speaker (and possibly solar panel) all of the technology will be housed in a small waterproof case and installed in a moist, urban, late autumn, mountain environment for up to three weeks.

      For the class Automata, Fall 2013, ITP NYU. One stepper motor was used instead of real clockwork spring. There're two extremely close-distance IR sensors right below the encoder wheel. As rotating the key, sensors read how much and to which direction the wheel wound up.

          London is a one of the most beautiful and crazy cities in the world. It is a very inspiring place but also a very stressful one. Sometimes, I wish I had a spot to escape from, liberate my mind, share a moment with my lover or my friends without feeling the urge of time, the lack of space, the competition. Taking the shape of a huge lampshade, Urban Oasis is an installation that can be set up and suspended wherever you want. Inside, the intimacy of a small space, the simple design and the use of light and sounds have been thought to create a pleasant and peaceful area, a quiet period in the midst of a difficult, troubled or hectic place. Urban Oasis has been built with an Arduino, an Arduino Wave Shield, some LEDS and a few batteries.

              Inspired by sitcoms and cartoons. I thought it would be fun to be able to add sound effects to my own life. So I made a sound effects suit jacket. The sound samples are triggered by a control panel with 4 buttons (3 for samples, 1 for changing sound banks). And then being played from an Arduino + Wave Shield through a portable speaker. All the hardware is kept within the inner jacket pockets while in use.

                    I ruined my Adafruit wave shield with my shoddy soldering skills. Sadly, It was no the only project that became a casualty Here's a look at some of my hardware failures, encased in molten glass and later observed under a microscope.

                      This is the sound shield that will be inside the housing of the remote monitoring station. It will play the warning sound once the PIR has been triggered. Whilst the file is playing it will also write to the serial monitor to visually show the status of the PIR sensor. Arduino have changed their library files, the AF Wave library is no longer in use, not sure why as this was easier to understand than the Wave HC library that has now taken its place, but with a little perseverance I overcame the problems and here is the result.
