TinySynth is a project oriented around a paper-craft synthesizer that can be built with a handful of components and conductive inks.
DressCode is a programming language and enviroment for designing and building decorative and functional artifacts.
StoryClip is a software-hardware tool that allows you to record sounds and attach them to specific conductive regions in a drawing. Metal clips attach to the edge of a sheet of paper, and turn conductive drawings (either with conductive ink or graphite) into capacitive touch buttons.
We’ve developed a set of tools and techniques that make it easy to use microcontrollers as an art or craft material, embedding them directly into drawings or other artifacts. We use the ATtiny45 from Atmel, a small and cheap (~$1) microcontroller that can be glued directly to paper or other objects. We then construct circuits [...]
Codeable Objects is a library for Processing that enables novice coders, designers and artists to rapidly design, customize and construct an artifact using geometric computation using geometric computation and digital fabrication The programming methods provided by the library allow the user to program a variety of structures and designs with simple code and geometry. When [...]
An exploration into the possibilities for individual construction and customization of the most ubiquitous of electronic devices, the cellphone.
Pu Gong Ying Tu is an interactive painting of a dandelion field. When you blow on the white puffs, the seeds disperse and generate new flowers. These flowers begin as yellow dandelions, but after a few moments bloom into responsive white seed puffs.
The Computational Textiles Curriculum is a collection of projects that leverages the creativity and beauty inherent in e-textiles to create an introductory computer-science curriculum for middle- and high-school students. The curriculum is taught through a sequence of hands-on project explorations of increasing difficulty, with each new project introducing new concepts in computer science, ranging from [...]
The LilyTiny is a small sewable breakout board for ATtiny85 microcontrollers – devices which may be integrated into circuits to enable pre-determined interactions such as lights that flash or areas that can sense touch.
An electric tambourine that is completely powered by the playing of the instrument.
