Tangible / Flexible Light

We have been researching on origami(tessellation) structures with light. Origami has great potentials for tangibility. It invites users to touch, reshape, play with it. We embedded surface mounted LEDs in the structure. Therefore the structure itself can be used for a sensor to measure how the user manipulates it and for an actuator(light) that visualize the user’s input.

3D Kinetic Light Display

We are creating a 3D kinetic display. Each pixel moves up and down creating 3D imagery.

For the initial experiment, we created Rain Drops. Each rain droplet is being dropped by a servo motor/spring.
