Interactions Sophie Manoury

WEEK 1

Power of Projection

Projection mapping was the focal point for this weeks’ workshop and how it can be used within the media industry. It is usually consisting of projecting 2D images onto buildings and real life objects. We looked at Disney’s ‘Haunted Mansion’s and how they use projection mapping for the dancing ghosts.

I personally think the technology in projection mapping has so much potential within the digital industry as it opens up many opportunities. For example in theatre now instead of physical set, digital projection is becoming more popular, this is bad for set creators but means that there are more jobs for the media industry as a whole.

WEEK 2

Virtual Environments

Virtual Reality (VR) is an artifical computer-generated simulation of a 3D image or environment that can be interacted with, this is usually through a headset device. Whereas Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that creates computer-generated layers to make the experience for the user more meaningful through the ability to interact with it.

Personally I think that VR is going to keep developing as it has already shown positive signs and not just for entertainment purposes. It's a positive step forward, particularly in medicine as it has been proved to help soldiers with PTSD and treat people with phobias. Another aspect of life VR has developed is in design and architecture, with revolutionising ideas to transform the spaces we live in.

WEEK 3

Connection Two Worlds

A micro-controller is a control device which incorporates a microprocessor. Electricity is the flow of electrical energy through conductive material, in this instance it is the micro-controller. The current is a measure of the magnitude of the flow of electrons in a circuit this is measured in amps and voltage is the measure of the electrical energy of the circuit. Resistance is a measure of a material’s ability to oppose the flow of electricity. Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on hardware and software which is able to read various inputs such as light sensor and motion recognition. By turning it to an output it will activate a motor which will enhance the activity, such as turning on an LED light.

LittleBits is an example of a Arduino and although it is slightly expensive I think it offers great possibilities. For example in medicine it could help remind patients to take their pills and dispense them on the correct days.
