I am a student at the faculty of industrial design at the Technical University of Eindhoven, the Netherlands. For our current project we are building 2 multitouch setups, to do research on creating awareness with multitouch.
It is our first projectweek, and we have been building for 3 days now. I find it interesting to see how other people build their screens, so I decided to share our building process as well.
Our goal is to design a new innovative communication platform, that creates a feeling of ‘awareness’ between users. For more info about this, you will have to wait it has only been 3 days!
Let’s hope this will be a succes and you will all be using our software in a few years…
We are making 2 identical screens at the same time! We have a lot of free materials at our school, like acryl, leds, wood, etc. In the workshop we can work with various tools, there is even a laser cutter available :D
We bought 140 x 940nm leds from a internetshop in holland, that only cost 6 cents each! Really cheap! LEDs-buy.nl
It is easyer for me to attach a few pictures per post, and describe what happens. So I will post some more in this topic soon!
