WiiSpray

in General



WiiSpray is Wiimote hack and piece of work by Martin Lihs – a student of my ex-colleagues over at the media faculty at the Bauhaus.

I like the addition of stencil usage – it takes it beyond the obvious paint program idea and you can also collaborate with other people (via the interwebs potentially). This part of the explanation is key:

“The actual hardware tool of the artist – the spraying can – remains constant in its shape and function and is a catalyst for this software supporting innovative computer interaction. The self-explanatory program requires no previous knowledge or reference of a user’s manual.”

(Via Daring Fireball, which probably means you have all seen it already. Sigh).

sweet, hadn’t seen it yet, so apparently you and I both live on the dark side of the moon. you got contact to these students directly?
and how good to see your new compelling blog layout. my google-feed reading is sometimes detrimental to catching up with new design efforts, very nice!

No, I didn’t teach these students, but I know the staff that worked with them on the project.

Thanks for the thumbs up on the new layout. I can’t get into Google Reader – I like all the keyboard shortcuts on NetNewsWire. But I know most people don’t see all the design work here or on The Designer’s Review of Books. No time to even surf the web!
