Awesome Chair

Visuals: (the screen should be up and running by the end of the weekend)

  • Static Screen
  • Thinking Screen (building on the thinking screen, we can design simple short AE moves, or simple messages that say thinking
  • Awesome Screen (Final Outcome ) (using scraped data)
  • 10 images/levels – for 10 categories displayed on screen.
    • The frames will be static and the images will be searchable from a database

Chair:

  • Cardboard with arcade images
  • Structurally need to figure out how it will work
    • Design around class chair because may just take one
  • Think about traveling chair – possibly a folding chair with cardboard cover on top so we can test the chair in a few different places.

  • great designs
  • space
  • explosions
  • motorcycles
  • race cars
  • mountain climbing
  • graffiti

Physical Computing: Seat button or hand sensor?

  • Hand Sensor will work better with our project just because the subject can touch the sensor when ready instead of sitting on it

Things to purchase:

  • a pressure sensor button
  • might need a keyboard to take apart

Programs we will use:

  • Processing
  • Arduino (wireless)
  • After Effects
  • Flash

Point People and our major duties: Of course we’ll help each other…

  • Valeria- Physical Computing
  • Katherine-Processing/ possibly audio (audio for “how awesome are you?”, pure awesome, aweeessoommm…)
    • search for positive “awesome” images (10 for level)
  • Rabia- Visual Design: chair, gage, screen (Design in After Effects or Flash)
    • search for negative “awesome” images (10 for level)
    • Researching for the biggest database of images for the levels as well as the look of the chair (possibly 3D images or objects on the chair to make it even AWESOMERrrr)
