I built some seriously awesome stuff last week. Stuff that made me feel pretty smart (in a genuinely geeky sort of way). I say this, because this feeling is rather unique. It mostly occurs when I am working on electronics and programming and things I find difficult to some extent. When I do get it though, get it enough to make stuff work, I get all euphoric. So I thought I would let you share in the special occasion.
For my final master project at Industrial Design, I am working on the design of an interactive water installation that invites playful behavior. The video shows part of the process in which I am doing some interaction explorations and am hard-core prototyping. These are just some first explorations, but I think it is a good starting point for further development. So if you are curious to know what I do in normal life, when I am not playing, have a look. Oh no, actually, it still shows me playing. Only with more impressive tools.
If you could make water react in any way you want, what would it do? Also, what would give you a magical feeling?
