In Karlskrona the Digital Media course is running on full speed. On October 11th they will showcase their projects at an open exhibition at Båtmanskasernen, Stumholmen. Carl Bergman is a student there and tells us this about the course:
What is happening in the digital media industry? After the first engaging Information Society module the students of Hyper Island Digital Media in Karlskrona are diving even deeper into the business by kicking off the Experience Technology module.
What is modern technology used for today? How will this change in the future? By creating new products out of today's hot products the students are challenging the everyday use of modern technology. What possibilities lies under the white cover of the Nintendo Wiimote? Is there anything you cannot do with an Arduino board?
Also feel free to read the Project Blogs:
Imagine yourself running through the rain forest with chittering monkeys around you, or maybe swimming at the bottom of the sea. All of this - possible in our surround room!
The WiiMote is communicating with the computer while inside the cube[...]
It was a long time I had a saw in my hand but after awhile I was used again. It felt really good, almost like back in the days, when you was a kid.
For this to be possible we have to have figured out a way to transform our keyboards buttons in too much bigger and more sensitive touchpads.
...our sound generator/simple synth patch prototype is finish and have been working together with the photoresistor to create the fundamental light string trigger.
Our idea is to project a wall on witch you will be able to do some graffiti with a simple LED. You will stan some meters away, facing the wall, and paint.
We probably got the brightest, reddest red color you could find, and with such a colorful expression we are surely likely to catch everyone attention at the exhibition. Its certainly going to be hard to miss us.
I'm working on the sketches for the construction and I intend to send them to some construction companies (such as Beijer) and ask for sponsorship.
I've done some tests generating random motion based on the sensor measurements and it works pretty good.
Take a break from your computer and the IT-world and just break it, hit the drums!
