+Interactive Cart+

A metal shopping cart converted into a mobile interactive audio/visual instrument. Touch and pressure are used to control the live manipulation of sound and image. The cart is equipped with a video projector, computer and battery making it portable and self contained. Using a microprocessor (arduino) and custom software (max/msp/jitter) to sense the users touch and translate the pressure of the users touch, a real-time response is created both visually and sonically. The cart is used by MPG performers and the audience is also encouraged to play the cart as well. This project was created by students Hogan Birney, Sean Kinberger and David Plakon under the direction of Matt Roberts at Stetson Universities Digital Art Program.
