The external, kinda fun part of an installation project I’m working on. This is just the external/visual aspect and actually not the end aesthetic that I’m going for, but ya, kinda fun.
Ran it at our Handmade Music Toronto event for the monome tour night, on Friday Sept 24. More info here:

One of the things that makes the role of interaction designer so utterly fascinating: the canvas is very quickly becoming our entire world and the palette expanding far beyond the traditional interaction model. The clothes we wear, the places we walk, devices as small as our watches and as large as our homes. Our smiles and gestures, biometrics and body language: everything.
Definitely exciting times. Now to make sure best practices, good taste, and moderation prevail over the inevitable urge to fill our physical world with the equivalent of “shoot the duck to win an iPhone” flash ads.
The new iPod Nano is a thing of beauty.

I decided to make my computer it’s own eyeball, for dignity’s sake.
Test run of the autotext thing. Fun and drostey.
Made a very quick little patcher which just outputs an as-you-type jitter matrix with text in it. I just made it really quick tonight ‘cause I keep cutting and pasting the same piece of an earlier patch and I figured this would be much easier.
