Hi, we're GeekPhysical and we like to play with technology. We use technology to create interactive experiences, installations, happenings, or playful rendezvous. We combine Interaction Design with Experience Design with Engineering to invent incredibly memorable experiences.
illutron member Jiazi Liu and Christian Liljedahl are building a critical design piece, exploring the possibilities of playing with an electric fence. The fence itself, not actually electric, is a fantastic interface, playing with load cells to create a unique interactive experience. The top wire gives information to the load cell when pulled while the other three wires of the 'fence' will create additional sounds when touched.
Dzl and Peter of illutron were working today on creating some nice Nuclear Devices! They aren’t actually Nuclear, but rather large fire cannons for a rock festival called Copenhell. We’re quite excited. In the video below you can see the ignitor system. The red canister in the photo is the gas canister, and a tube will go on top of that to funnel the fuel upwards until it reaches the ignitor and explodes. Good times!
Presenting to a class of Interaction Design students right before they start the descent into Arduino madness. Explaining rapid prototyping, interactive projects and complex projects. 40 minute presentation. Presentation in PDF form will be available on Slideshare soon!
The couple (who met creating a critical corset that tightens when the wearer's heart rate goes up) have decided to take the leap and get married! We of course love biometrics and geekery and thus have decided that our wedding needs to be equally geeky. We've been working hard on taking our biometrics project into a new realm, detecting wedding emotions and datalogging the entire day.
64 LEDs are soldered together, creating a grid. The programmed microcontroller displays a 64 X 64 photograph, edited for high contrast, black and white, and scrolls and zooms the photo across the 64 leds, each one lighting in turn to create the image.
Out flying with kids (model airplanes) buzzing them with the plane. they thought it was fun to try and hit the plane with sticks and whatnot. but obviously that's not good so they started thinking about having some kind of laser gun to shoot the plane with. thought about it, figured out it can be done with a laser pointer and a detector on the plane. The idea is real life Star Wars fun. The plane flying above will shoot people on the ground, and the people on the ground can fire at the plane. ...
