Project Description:
Project Brief

I am looking for someone to design an affordable, physical 2D position sensor array. My application is unique: creation of DIGITAL SOUNDS from a physical sensor array.

The idea for this contest is very similar to HAIHONG ZHU's Georgia Tech project. They created a 2D electromechanichal array that uses linear voltage displacement transducers that the user can actually shape by hand.

The project can be seen on the GaTech website: :

"The idea and concept of Digital Clay, at the current technology stage, is to construct and control a massive hydraulic actuator array to:

Provide a 3D/2.5D tangible surface actuated under the control of a computer
Respond to pressure in a haptic/semi-haptic fashion
Provide a bi-directional interaction means between a user and a computer, i.e.,
The user shapes the surface; the computer acquires the surface shape
The computer commands the surface shape; the user sees and/or feels the shape and the virtual material properties

In reality, the Digital Clay is similar to a powered version of a toy named as "Pin Art" ....."
Please see attachments for details. My previous projects ffrom are provided for reference in the .ppt slides.
