Lumbervolt – Turning a hammer and nail into a switch.
A two weeks work during the KISD project “Analogies in the Digital” by Dorothee Clasen (Integrated Design student). The goal was to manipulate already existing, analog thinks to create a blended Space, a Schnittstelle between “natural” and digital spaces. To invent an interaction that goes beyond the common WIMP-Metaphors.
In the first week we focused on analysing already existing Switches and developed various concepts. The task of the second week was to realize out final concept and finally present it on an exhibiton. To make sure that we focus on the inpute device,
the group of students decided to control not more than three basic elements: a bulb, a fan and/or sound.
