NEW IDEA 1
This idea is inspired by musical cocktail glass. Each water level initiate different musical notes. Using water level sensor, user can create their own notes for each glasses. Then they can play a musical piece.
NEW IDEA 2
The second idea is related to last week concept of meditation. It is inspired by Japanese traditional device using water power to create sound. “Scare the deer” Shishi-odoshi is a A trickle of water into the upper end of the tube accumulates and eventually moves the tube’s center of gravity past the pivot, causing the tube to rotate and dump out the water. The heavier end then falls back against the rock, making a sharp sound, and the cycle repeats.
The diffused colorful light on the panel change.
Having experienced many meditation trainings, I often found myself having trouble concentrating when I try to practice at home. Therefore, I want to create the light panel that does not only keep you calm, but also warn you that you are not concentrating.
The panel goes white when the object in front of it moves. The colors movement continues when the object stays still.
EN-LIGHT-ENMENT is not only meant for adults create inner peace, but also meant for young audience. Since many studies show that meditation is great for child’s development, children are encourage to practice in school, at home, and in temple. Each instructors have their own ways of dealing with kids. Therefore, this light panel is one of the tools that could help children concentrate and stimulate their visual sensory.
These are some sensors I think could work for this idea.
