Free APP on site ^

Augmented reality turns your I-Phone into a geometry constructor. By utilizing the video camera on the I-Phone Konstruct gathers color data and creates 3D geometry within the image based on voice command. The louder the users voice gets the bigger the Geometries grow. By moving back and forth users can shift the canvas off the screen and draw more shapes. By moving back to any location with Geometries already drawn the I-phone repopulates the screen with the shapes as drawn originally.

Flash touchscreen without the touch. By using ultrasonic sensory devices the user can click the screen by approaching close to the surface and move around using any object, hand, finger, pen ect…..  Say good bye to the finger smudges !

Table Talking with an Arduino

What would your speech look like? What shape would a conversation with friends take? A few students designed a table to explore the invisible world of dialect. Creating a visible representation of human speech displayed on the surface of a coffee table. An arduino is used to recognize and distinguish different voices and projects them as individual colors, floating and morphing as the conversation goes on.
