The aim of this project is to enable the transfer of knowledge using technology to engage with a wide range of human senses. Communication of information using a large number of stimuli leads to new experiences which enhance interactions with new qualities (in contrast to a 2D screen, this interface is sensed as much as seen).

This concept is focused on the relations between music, drawings and movements with users’ hearing, vision and touch. Information is transferred from the real to the virtual world, and vice versa, simultaneously. Movement generates music and drawing, music generates movement and drawing and dancing creates new music. Interactions takes place in the 3D space with screen, sensors, speakers and the ball. Changing the position of the ball in space leads to changes in tone and volume, and simultaneously in color hue and brightness. Lines produced by moving the ball generate 3D drawing on a computer screen.

The resulting interactions encourage learning and create new playful experiences.
