After the test period in March we have continued to work on new light and battery solutions, for next generations of co-creative tangibles. Even if we were very satisfied with the use and experience of Wave Carpet’s interactive bubble field, we knew it was very fragile. We therefore experiment to see if we can improve the durability of the interactive and lighting surfaces.
Next generation will be mobile tangibles. We did not finalized testing of Wave Orange, which is wireless and based on iPhone/iPod and our own breakout card iDevice. We therefore continue on the experimentations of breakout solutions to Android and iPhone/iPod. First we have focused on finding one satisfying chargeable battery solution to run all the light, smartphone and breakout card on one single battery, which means we have to rebuild and redesign the light solution based on 5volt .
