Workshop on Research Directions in the Aesthetics of Mobile Devices in the Theater: Cross-disciplinary Perspectives
Friday, May 1, 2015 Krannert Art Museum, Lower Level

We are hoping this will open up a can of worms of questions about the aesthetic and ethical questions surrounding mobile devices in the theater and concert hall!
See the LAITday page for more information!
Yesterday evening the two teams developing LAIT met for the first time together to share what they’ve accomplished this semester. First the students demonstrated the applications they’d developed. Afterwards we discussed some particulars of the software, and how we might integrate the two efforts into one product next semester.
First the CS492 students showed a system that accepted accelerometer data from two phones and changed color on each phone based upon the amount of activity in both phones. If one phone was shaking a moderate amount, only half of its screen would turn blue, while the other half remained dark. If both phones were shaking a moderated amount, then both sides of the screen would turn blue, indicating that the other phone was also shaking. The same system turned the phones red if the phones were being shaken more rapidly. Continue reading End of Semester Demonstration Meeting
Tracing movement with sensor-enhanced ballet slippers and an app that can see the traces. I wonder if this could be an enhancement of the ballet experience?
Could be an interesting performance set for audience control: the LYT – Interactive light fixture with the Intel Galileo board. Info at https://communities.intel.com/thread/47075. Follow the link that is in this article to the Creator’s Project website for a much more interesting description and videos.
some of the links here could be pretty useful for visualization and sound production: http://hackingforartists.com

I particularly like the “RunPee” functionality :^)! The AR in the lobby is good, too.
