THE PRAYERS DRUM

 

›The Prayer’s Drums‹ is an interactive multi-touch installation.

 

The visitors are invited to touch and spin a large-scale array of virtual drums. Each of the drums possess a sound scape that react accordingly to the spinning amplitude.

 

 

 

THE WIND TUNNEL

 

Interface perception of horizontal planar sites and of panoramic scale.

 

The ›Wind Tunnel‹ is a large-scale interactive multi-touch / user installation. The visitors are invited to experience a long corridor depicting virtual flow and air turbulence: the Floor. The Floor can be modified to fit the site-specific requirements. The tunnel could namely be deployed in parallel to moving escalators and in long transit spaces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MULTI-TOUCH INTERFACE

 

Interface perception of close-proximity shared environments. The table presents a typical interface of a beat box musical instrument. Along the horizontal axis are time divisions (16). Along the vertical divisions are tracks or sounds (4).

 

The audience can select a sound to be played by simply touching the corresponding rectangle. Holding down augments its volume.

Touching it again, brings it down to zero. The visualization of the volume is rendered by growing 3D shapes. The environment comes with multiple sets of pre-arranged sounds samples that marry each other to create different groove styles.
