The components that we ordered for the wearable came in last week. Thanks to Aaron’s pcomp genius, and help from some folks on the floor, we **drum roll** got our first prototype of the pulse data going to a P5 sketch.
Like all things ITP, this project presented a lot of creative and technical obstacles.
Originally we had wanted to shoot scenes at my house, around the city and at ITP. Then we realized that it would be really difficult to do in a week, especially with all of the moving shots. So we decided to limit the scope and shoot from overhead against a white sheet.
I’m excited to be moving forward with the wearable pulse transmitter for my pcomp project. The idea has grown into a larger collaboration with Aaron Parsekian and Danielle Butler. The three of us will be collaborating on the physical computing components. Aaron and I will be collaborating on the ICM components. Here’s a link to the project outline. Here’s a link to the tag on my blog for this project.
