Physical Computing Final Project
Our purpose is “Do make people feel plant’s emotion”
when user water the plant, the video of a tree’s grown up appeared on the screen.
The tree on the screen grown up and flowering like plant’s dream.
we used tilt sensor and Ascent SPIDER module(like arduino).

I made my assignment as a pdf files because I need to attach some swf files, if you want to see it, just click it. 😀
Our final project is “Torgel”. Torgel means toy+orgel.
We though kids are interested in making different music by themselves and this project will help to develop children’s susceptibility.
Our project was formed a stage. There are four musicians in the stage.
We used LEDs, magnets and HALL sensor.
Hall sensor works by distance of magnet. It can measure magnet’s distance.
We wanted working 16 types of lighting and playing musics, like this, playing music and lighting change by each musicians arrangements. But we could not working that.
We tried to the HALL sensors work with each different magnets. But there was some problems on the processing cording. So we made it works 4 types of lighting and playing musics.
During the course of this project, we sometimes felt frustration , but we successed 4/5 of project.
BLOW UP – PROPOSAL(PDF)
My project’s main concept is sensibility through unusual reaction.
my technic is simple. but using a sensor’s method is little bit different and embedded deep meaning .
main metaphor is candle
when blow out candle
common reaction is putting out a light.
but i reversed common reacting. and break stereotype.
when blow out candle
light up the candle
so user can feel something different sensibility.
and so i combined candle and cake and that makes synergy effect
about celebration and can realize more deeply sensibility and surprising
it’s not a big event and not a giant mock-up interaction work.
my interaction is from the trivial things
and i wanna lead a pure users .
