Sea knots, noise and iPhone
The student of the Swiss Institute of Art and Matthew Minge’s (Matthieu Minguet) Design when writing diploma as object of research chose the iPhone. Its work is devoted to research of influence of a form of a loop on modulation of the signal transferred directly through the audio-socket of phone. The accessory acted as a sound digitizer in a picture. The program of definition of a signal of Matthew wrote itself, as well as the hands assembled the necessary devices for experience.
That before estetstvuyushchy members of a selection committee installation did not seem a chaotic set of wires, the student тормознул on a visual type of sea knot. It it killed to a meeting of 2 hares: in – 1-x, everything looks beautifully; in – 2-x, in a rope covering 5 flexible sensors with the accumulator on 240 мАч are built in. Sensors "feel", when the knot is compressed or stretched, then send on the iPhone the corresponding impulse. And that will already transform arriving information to a color picture and a sound. [ca]
Big call for Matthew was to find room for all electronics in a limited place. It is necessary to tell, it perfectly consulted with it. Though not from the first.
The appendix for the iPhone was written with the help:
openFrameworks – generation of sounds,
Objective-C – the interface and the analysis of arriving signals,
PureData – realization of effects.
By the way, this cord can be connected to earphones and to listen to music.
Matthew Minge is inexpressibly proud of the work about what shared with readers iPhones.ru.
So in Europe future industrial designers are brought up. Perhaps, before us the following generation which will change Johnathan Ayva. Students of this institute not only understand design of Wednesday, well and can solder, plane, sew, glue and think the head. Moreover, they can themselves промотировать. I think that Matthew already received a lot of invitations from employers.
If someone knows similar Russian projects, write in comments. While further Russian wood supports business does not go.
P.S. As you could behold, in a roller Urbanears earphones are used.
