I would like to share with you our project called 'De Metronoom', a project we worked on last spring.
In short, it is an interactive, highly responsive, generative, multi-noded pyramid-shaped multi-person music-by-laser-device. Oh wait, that's not short at all, sorry.De Metronoom plays the rhythm of the night. Six connected installations point six laser beams into the room. Visitors play the lasers like instruments and compose a soundtrack, arranging samples from classical instruments, street artists, beats and the machine room of a printing press.
Each metronoom-unit contains an arduino, a laser, a ping))) sensor, a servo, and speakers. All units together are linked to a dedicated server software & hardware
It looks like this:
In october we gave a 10-minute presentation on the project, in which we explain the entire thing. You can see it here: http://www.thishappened.org/talks/zesbaans-utrecht-4/
In the process we posted some (now solved) questions on the forum at http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1240516960/
