“If we employ machine intelligence to augment our writing activities, it’s worth asking how such technology would affect how we think about writing as well as how we think in the general sense.” (Ross Godwin )
How to start
Imagine Communication between objects through their tactile properties
sensors to the world (other machines, human and environment)
plan to use a spin drum on the top of the servo A. work with catch dreamer format as it spin, and automata spinner Robert Race, carousel toy , spin
Plan to encapsulate Two servo motors, A and B
- Environment produce shadow/ sound/ light …… and trigger A
- A motor on
- A turn and hit B ( every time or randomly)
- B motor on
- B produce sound
<When Sensing EMF from electronic devices you have on you
The nodes move A / Nodes = textile + SERVO / Osc control / Nodes sound B , if no EMF>
<Building a matrix ( resisitive or capacitive) sensors > , in order to map touch by machines, exchanging OSC messages
- all about capacitive versus resistive sensors Capacitive elastomer sensors can be assembled by sandwiching elastomer dielectric layers between elastomer electrodes that are filled with conducting particles. Resistance strain gauges, commercially available from the early 1940s, are now predominantly fabricated from metal foil . Such strain gauges are now ubiquitous and used for characterizing small mechanical strains in rigid engineering structures, force (load) cells, scales for weighing, and the engineering testing of metals and rigid composites. What is measured is the change in the gauge resistance
