Type – Research on a series of interactive objects
Location – Lausanne
Self commissioned project
Open Controllers combines common industrial objects with sensors that smartphones are typically equipped with, such as the gyroscope or the camera, in order to create controllers that are easy to reproduce: a sphere and a cube that transmit 3D movements, as well as a cone that can locate a source of light. These controllers work with a game especially developed for them.
The project asks questions about everyday technologies, offering simple solutions to understand them more fully and discover their potential. It is intended for an audience of designers and developers, but also for amateur programmers. It is a hybrid project, neither work nor product, that can be defined by those who wish to approach it.
