Natebu and Processing

November 28, 2007

I finally managed to upload a new movie about the data visualisation. One of the Natebu boards is connected to a mac that is running a Processing sketch. This bar chart was just for debugging. The door is now open to all kind of Processing applications.

We did it!!!

July 8, 2007


After three days and nights working we finaly finished our project. We turned over a functional matrix prototype, a high end mock-up and flash animations to explain the interaction. Enjoy the pix as we do.

resistor bender

It took a while to get the idea but these too MDF pieces saved the day.
Bending over 1’000 resistors by hand would have been a real pain…

What we do

June 8, 2007

We never realy told you what we want to do with our creation. In fact we never realy knew it. But now we do! After houres of discutions and hard work we decided to create a interactive sculpture for the public space. It is our wish to bring peoples together, give them the chance to be active and communicative and bring life and relaxation to urban spaces. Led matrixes are already awhile a part of many public spaces but they are just used to tell use waht we should wear or drink. With our matrix you have the chance to get in a dialog with it and expres your self. The monolith and the arc are the ones we wont to work out.

Form follows…

Because mind and body should be in harmony we started to search a suitable physical form for our creation.

Technigal Concept Roundup

May 19, 2007

Over the past weeks we had many diffrent ideas of how an interactive LED- Matrix could work. To free our minds we illustrated them all colorful.

This one is the technique we want to realize with a prototyp.


More concepts after the jump.

Post-it Brainstorm

May 4, 2007


After our tests we started to think how can we create something wich is not only fun for us. So we tried to find scenarios with a value for other peoples. For that we used the good old method to writte everytihng in your brain on a Post-it and stick it to a wall. Sorry und jetzt muess i uf e Zug. Mach morn fertig…

Here you can find a digital version of the brainstorming:
