Pixel - Interactive Mechatronic installation
“Pixel”, is a group project to create an interactive mechatronic system. Through the design process, we decided to create an elegant bird-themed informative installation, playing various documentary tracks according to different selections.
I designed and built the UI and electronics, which centres around the Raspberry Pi and Arduino controls. Which the links to the various LEDs, motors and microphone for the system output to the user.
The installation uses a hacked dial phone as the user interface, with the phone dial as the input and phone handset as audio output. It controls the different modes of the origami bird, activating different lighting, movement and audio.
