Symbolic objects in a networked gestural sound interface

Symbolic objects in a networked gestural sound interface
SignalPlay is a sensor-based interactive sound environment in which familiar objects encourage exploration and discovery of sound interfaces through the process of play. Embedded wireless sensors form a network that detects gestural motion as well as environmental factors such as light and magnetic field. Human interactions with the sensors and with each other cause both immediate and systemic changes in a spatialized soundscape. Our investigation highlights the interplay between expected object-behavior associations and new modes of interaction with everyday objects. Here we present observations on embodied network interaction and suggest opportunities for further investigation in this field. Author Keywords Augmented reality; interactive sound; social computing; embodied interaction; sensors; symbolic objects; play.
