YesYesNo was commissioned to build a real scale, remote controlled R2D2 for a Star Wars themed wedding. An app was built to control the robot's motors through wifi with the use of a Raspberry Pi. Aside from movement, the app could also control the robot's lights and sounds, creating a very convincing interaction with R2D2.
I worked with the lead designer Marcele Godoy and was involved in the design and production process, including 3D modeling, printing and finishing details of the model, designing and implementing the motor mounts for the sweeping eye movements and programming the light sequences.
I Like Your Taste
The term window shopping in french (lèche-vitrine) directly translates to licking a window. This inspired Windowlicker, an interactive window installation with a big drooling mechanical tongue that follows pedestrians around outside the window.
Software for people tracking was written in Cinder using input from a kinect and two servos handle the x and y axis motion.
Made for the Popup Window Display course at ITP NYU.
