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.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
