+ Processing programming language as new approach to drawing patterns
+ connect 2D virtual space with 3D physical space as interesting way of presentation light object with different patterns (maybe for later projects)
+ textile, wearable technology and movement (contemporary dance)
IDEA AND OUTPUT
With research of gyros, accelerometers and x-IMU gloves I was thinking to make interactive textile with different sensors and use LilyPad with wireless module. I came to an idea to draw with body gestures, not only with a glove. Interactive textile can be easily sew into clothes.
Through experimentation I’d like to find out how to connect different parts of the body with different sensors to control Processing drawing application.
1/ connect textile with one sensor
textile + LilyPad + gyro + Processing
textile+ LilyPad + accelerometer + Processing
textile + LilyPad + 3 bend sensors or fabric potentiometers + Processing
2/ connect textile with two sensors
textile + LilyPad + gyro + 3 bend sensors/fabric potentiometers + Processing
textile + LilyPad + accelerometer + 3 bend sensors/fabric potentiometers + Processing
textile + LilyPad + gyro + accelerometer + Processing
3/ connecting it all
textile + LilyPad + gyro + accelerometer + 3 bend sensors/potentiometers + Processing
In the end I’d like to create interesting interactive textile or pattern for dancers to communicate with Processing drawing application. Final product will be made with wireless module.
