Blogoshere: touching digital links

2012


3 months artistic project (team of 2 students) at Ludwig-Maximilian-University.
Prototype visualizes the digital world of connected blogs ('blogosphere') via interactive physical paper articles. Sitting inside of the sphere, the links on the articles can be touched and the connection to the linked article is illuminated (led stripes, using capacitive sensing with ARDUINO microcontroller). Comments can be left physically with a marker.
