Festival della Creativita

Originally uploaded by geekphysical
Our first test run after setting up our exhibition at Festival della Creativita. Everyone looked cool in their shades hooked up with IR gaze detection, and followed their heart beat and GSR streams flowing from one person to another. The festival begins today and its been a hard two days getting this booth in order! We're doing the last touches of tweaking the program and locking everything down (theft is popular in Italy!). We have some great neighbors - check out their video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGvwP4QyLcA and another neighbor who is specializing in projecting interactive graffiti!

BSI - Hardware

The hardware is complete! A victory after three weeks of working insanely hard (well one of us working insanely hard and the other being an excellent non-hardware expert kinda cheerleader).
A quick rundown of what's in the photo:
Sunglasses have infrared sensor/receiver. Finger hold has galvanic skin response sensor and heart rate sensor. All cased within a sexy black box!

Participants will place the finger sensor on their index finger, and it will receive heart rate/galvanic skin response data and the sunglasses have an IR sensor so when people look at each other, it registers.

Hardware built, some much appreciated help from our friend Jonas (check out his site: http://www.halfdanj.dk/) on the software and away we go! .... well soon. A few more things to be done first. But then we go! :) Festival della Creativita here we come!
