La Boîte de Pandore

Audio/visual installation project for “studies of interactive objects” class at university back in 2012.

This first prototype version uses a 6 degrees of freedom IMU (ADXL345 + ITG-3200) for transmitting acceleration and rotation data from Arduino to Max/Msp(sound) and Processing(visual) via serial port.

The sensor data is used to move the max/msp buffer playhead for the sound and mapped to rotation and particles position for the visual,
thanks to Memo Akten MSAFluid Processing port.

Wireless support added with Seeed BT Shield in second version :
