This was an R&D project of YesYesNo, an interactive installation designed to be only exhibited at Cinekid Festival in Amsterdam.
This project takes small forces from the hands of participants and scales them up, creating a stage where air, wind, fog, vibration can affect a crowd. The installation features wearable devices with embedded sensors, which are worn by users who then use their muscles and body gestures making a “playable” space.
I designed and produced the hardware consisting of a series of wearables, which were made combining flexible and regular 3D printing material. The wearables have embedded muscle sensors, powered by a portable battery, which sends biometric signal data wirelessly in real time. The sensors are small electrodes that need to be placed in certain places on the arm.
