Comp-nunication is a physical installation discussing how we can transfer emotion from one lifeless object to another. In this project, two laptops were “talking” with each other. So what you see in this video is when two people push the laptops toward to each other, the animations on the laptops will become more intense. I want to indicate that every object will be able to interact with each other if we embedded sensors on them in the future, which is also the concept of Internet of things.

It was an interesting exploration of Internet of Things. The methodology to implement this project was to combine Processing with Arduino. I coded some animation in Processing first and then got the data from an Ultrasonic Sensor in Arduino to control and change pace of the animation.
