Augmented sensory room
Adam Montando just sent me a project he is working on: Visual Voice Pro is an intriguing new product:
"Visual Voice Pro will create an immersive, reactive digital playspace. The Visual Voice Pro installation comprises of a sensitive microphone, a computer with a data projector, and custom software written especially for the space. The microphone will listen to all the sounds in the room, from footsteps to laughter to singing or even banging a drum. The computer will then instantly process the sounds to create abstract, beautiful graphics that illuminate the wall via the projector. Different sounds will create different effects. Loud noises can create big effects, quiet noises can create subtle effects, high pitches or low pitches can create different effects."
Why do I blog this it's interesting to see that these interactive products are now sold, I'd love to see what kids do out of it.
