Blowing-sensitive Creatures!

Blow a wave to the facade and change the hotel's color!

As part of the Media Facades Festival 2010 we have built a blowing-sensitive device which is connected to the facade of the Lánchíd 19 Design Hotel. If you are blowing the device it starts to light and send a data to the facade. After few seconds you can see a wave on the facade that you made.

How it works

The facade of Lánchíd 19 Hotel was controlled by three handmade PCB broad creations. The electronics of the work consist of an Arduino Mega and a shield especially made for this project, cooling fans acting as blow sensors, LED lights, speakers, amplifier and a sound card. The interaction software of the work is written in Max/Msp, which communicates with vvvv that controls the dmx lighting system, using OSC protocol through wireless network.
