A multi-user sensor network explorer that provided a haptic, aural and visual experience, allowing viewers to experience sensor data ported from other spaces.
The ubiquitous sensor network and media explorer integrates sound, images, and diverse data sampled throughout the Media Lab into a visual, aural and haptic experience.
Real time data drives the system, allowing the observer to sense the overall activity of the Media Lab.
Sound and images are streamed into our system from a selection of 45 sensor nodes distributed throughout our Lab.
Observers can interact with the piece, both observing the generic activity of the Media Lab and drilling down to browse media streamed from particular locations.
The installation reflects the essence of the Media Lab as a holistic entity.
Exibited in ARS Electronica, Linz Austria and on semi-permanent exhibit at The Media Lab.
