“Another Side Of In” is an interactive multimedia collaboration between Phish musician Mike Gordon, artist Marjorie Minkin and creative technologist Jamie Robertson. Part of the 2009 Boston Cyberarts Festival, the exhibit allows viewers to interact with 3-dimensional artwork, controlling sound and light through proximity to the works.
This is a quick behind-the-scenes look at the technology.
I recently used the EZ1 in an interactive exhibit for the 2009 Boston Cyberarts Festival, and can attest to how easy it is to work with. I used the serial TX output with a PSoC micro, and with a little filtering, got accurate and repeatable sensing of people in the 3 to 6 foot range. Here’s a short video about the project, though there’s not much in there about the EZ1 specifically.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
