After a week of setting up, Extant's 'The Question' is now live, with performances running throughout the week. This project has been in the pipeline for several years so it's pretty satisfying to finally see the fruits of all the work and late nights.
My contribution to this project was the design of a unique navigation system that would assist people in finding their way around the pitch black installation. Below is an image of some 'haptic lotus' devices, waiting to be fitted to particpants entering the installation. These devices are one half of the navigation system that I designed, with Daivd McGoran and Paul O'Dowd, for this project.
I don't want to give away too much information on the project until the end of the week (i.e. I don't want to ruin it for any of the participants), so expect more details on the technology then.
I am interested in Robotics, Haptics, Assistive Technology, Creative Technology, and hacking for the sake of it.
I'm a full time robotics researcher and creative technologist on the side.
When I'm not busy, I wonder what the hell has happened.
I also like to DJ and have a cat with opposable thumbs.
