Physical Computing Project Invisible Waves

From Muchete on vimeo:

In the course of a day or even a few hours, the human body is confronted with a variety of turbulences in form of waves. They can occur as vibrations in the ground, while a tram or a car passes by. As wind or sounds and noises in the air. All these forces can influence the body in more or less obvious manners.

We created two devices, one, a mobile device, to measure the background waves at various locations and a second apparatus to transfer the data into aluminum foil, the carrier material. With this machines, we tried to bring this invisible moment of influencing into the light of human perception. The aluminum foil has two effects. First, the crackling sounds and the beautiful surface reflections during the transfer of the measured data. Second, the transferred data leaves a trace inside the foil, like in the human body. This Petri bowl-like objects can thereafter function as a taxonomical study.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
