SoundDive

SoundDive is the result of a collaboration between the Center for Art, Design and Technology (CATCH) in Elsinore and AIR LAB at the IT-University of Copenhagen. The installation is an auditive augmented virtuality experience of a science-fiction soundscape. The soundscape represents what the deep sea around Elsinore could sound like in the not too distant future. When entering SoundDive, users encounters the buzzing of internet cables along the seabed and drones speeding by them as they explore and interact with the soundscape by moving around the room. The project was an experiment in how sound could function as the main modality of mixed reality experiences.…

Advanced Design Processes Course Supervision 2019

In the fall semester of 2019, AIR LAB assisted students in the course "Advanced Design Processes" to build a wide array of prototypes. In this compilation we present a selection of the work that came out of the collaboration, while highlighting the most important technologies that brought these designs to life. 1. Hear Me Now A kinetic pendant lamp reacting to noise levels in the room. It is meant to increase the awareness of the daily challenge in noisy spaces, for hearing-impaired individuals, in work environments. An increased noise level makes it hard or impossible for hearing- impaired to follow the conversations in a meeting room/work…

AIR Lab Workshop Series #1: Interactive Projections

In the 2019 fall semester, AIR LAB hosted a workshop about creating interactive spaces with projections. For the workshop we made use of the Processing IDE and the lab’s ceiling-mounted, floor-facing Microsoft Kinect body tracker and Projector setup. After an introduction to the hardware, participants were provided with example code, that could later be used as templates to build upon, to create one’s own interactive experience. At the end of the workshop, participants presenter their interactive projections/experiences, using one’s own body tracking as a sensor input. For instance, one participant made a game where the user had to dodge a ball moving about in the…
