Remember my last explorations to build an interactive fountain? My final master project at industrial design is really starting to take shape: I have been busy building a more developed prototype that is even bigger.
Basically the water just ‘opens the way’ for you wherever you walk. I think the effect is kind of magical. Above all I am happy I got the basic idea to work; it was a huge step getting my electronics and software to work together and then program the water behavior. I use a webcam to track the location of people from above. Then I use that location as source for my program to change the behavior of the fountains accordingly.
What do you think? Would you like to try it?
