I like to play with different stuff, from software, physical devices, electronics, video, photography, music.
Below there’s some research topics that I’ve made in the past.
This project started with “Interact“, a research project that enabled us to research on ways to enable multiple users to interact and to engage both in virtual and physical worlds at the same time.
Artica Instruments started as an experiment with physical computing, and resulted in a set of modules designed for fast prototyping, mainly physical control panels. These panels can be used in many different contexts related to physical computing, interactivity, control panels, robotics, musical instruments, and so on.
All these modules have an open source hardware philosophy and have a dedicated repository on Github. Feel free to use them as you wish.
There’s also a Youtube channel with some tutorials on how to use and interface these modules with the Arduino / Teensy platform.
Another experiment using holographic illusions aka Pepper’s Ghost, this time with a physical interaction between the virtual and the real worlds. Check the walkthrough in case you want to know more about this experiment.
Exploring spatial soundscapes with body location.
This prototype is a proof of concept for location-based sound exploration.
Each participant/VIVE tracker has a sound attached, this sound follows the participant inside the room. If the participant moves to a corner the sound becomes more audible in that specific corner. This video shows a proof of concept in a small room, the same concept can be applied in any room size, or even in large venues.
Follow the video’s link for a full description.
