Hiperorganicos 2018, Netherlands, Delft

Sensor-actuator prototypes linking virtual and physical worlds.

Linking physical and virtual worlds for creating a playful virtual-physical continuum.

The one-week workshop organised by NANO, Ope Lab Immersive Environment, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro as part of the Hiperorganicos 2018 at the Museum of Tomorrow focused on the development of sensor-actuator prototypes linking virtual and physical worlds. Participants developed various prototypes from which one is showcasing a thug ball linking its physical movement in space to its virtual representation thus creating a virtual-physical continuum. The playful feedback loop established between the two worlds will be customisable by users in the future.

Team members : Henriette Bier, Alex Liu Cheng (PhD student), and workshop participants (MSc students and professionals)

Project leader(s) : Assoc. Prof. Henriette Bier, Robotic Building Lab, TU Delft

Partners : NANO, Ope Lab Immersive Environment, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro

Descriptions

Technical concept : Using sensor-actuators and processing (https://processing.org) the physical ball is linked with the virtual. Each movement of the ball initiates transformations in the virtual world.

Visual concept : The virtual and physical worlds mirror each other in a playful way. While there is only one physical ball moving in a controlled trajectory of up and down, the virtual world represent multiple balls showcasing the artistic interpretation of the trajectory.
