Food Screening: Arduino Project Makes Eating Alone A Movie Extravaganza #ArduinoMonday
Eating alone can be a joy, or it can be a fast trip to the doldrums, depending on who you are. For folks who want some action while they gnosh, here’s Food Screening. Sound and movement cues trigger movie clips that correspond to what you’re doing. What will bring up Godzilla eating a subway car? You find out. via Arduino Blog
Food Screening is an Arduino-based project inspired by the act of watching films while eating meals alone, and was conceived especially for people living on their own abroad. The installation–developed by visual communicator Fongyee Ng in collaboration with Han–gyeol Lee–uses light and distance sensors to create an interaction with each food item, which triggers a snippet from a film that mimics the sound effects of consuming the meal, making eating alone a more entertaining experience.
