An interactive installation during a three day event “Tallinn Bus Station in Sounds” (30 August – 1 September 2010) where various Estonian artists performed. The event was part of project “52 Weeks of Surprises and Ideas – A Year Before Tallinn 2011, The Culture Capital of Europe”.
The installation consisted of seven old kinescope monitors connected to seven interactive balls. The monitors displayed graphics and animations about bus station themes, blue balls with tilt and photosensors controlled different parameters of the animations, so the visitors were able to act as Vj-s inside an old Ikarus bus.
In addition, there were two TV-s playing a dvd loop generated with Arduino TV-out library displaying random travel destinations, overwriting the previous ones and, therefore, creating nonexistent locations.
The installation was run by Max/MSP/Jitter and Arduino I/O board.
First off, I love the idea here of people being able to VJ, and I love the innovative use of the Arduino TV-out library. Second, how cool is that bus!?
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.
