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: [login to view URL] :
"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" ....."

“Obervic was the only credible entry for my project/contest out of the millions of freelancers. The project was very technical and academic, and he was the only entrant to take the challenge and put real thought and effort into it. If you have a complex electro-mechanical computer design problem, I would invite him to bid on your project.”
