Telling Tales

[Chocolate,Chocolate, Add some milk]

•03/03/2010 • Leave a Comment


There is a game called “chocolate chocolate add some milk” which is played by 4 to 5 people standing in a line.
It starts by the first player who does some moves with in the rhythm of “chocolate chocolate add some milk”.And after the first round the second player duplicate the first player’s move while the first player is creating a new move. And the third player duplicate the second player’s move and so on.

In this project I used web cam to record moves. After the round it plays the frames that has been recorded right next to the real time frames. And then doing the video cascade for the rest player.
For implementation first I captured the frames from the web cam and drew it in numbers of rectangle, and at the same time I save it as an image array. Finally I cascaded the video in sequence with 100 frames delay for each video.

The project uses a web cam and a projector. A good lighting condition is required.

And I wore black shirt and gloves to enhance the video capture.

Jamming Gear / フリーデモ from So KANNO on Vimeo.

Just saw this from TEI
Music is controlled by the rotating gears. The size of gears change the speed and the direction of rotation decides whether play forward or backward.

The design is beautiful and elegant.

Immaterials: the ghost in the field

I have been thinking about what does the radio around us look like.  The project “Immaterials: the ghost in the field” is about visualizing the spatial qualities of RFID from Timo Arnallof the Touch project and Jack Schulze of BERG. The lack of touch feature of RFID has made it “magic” for many system we interact with everyday.They believe that better understanding this invisible feature will help designers to design better interaction.
