Expressive KineticObjects

To explore the use of motion of physical objects to convey information and emotion, we have designed a series of Expressive Kinetic Objects.

The Dyna-Lux is a kind of Expressive Kinetic Objects. The Dyna-Lux is a table lamp augmented with a microprocessor, sensors, and the ability to physically move. We are experimenting with the lamp as a physical qualitative display of digital information. Wobble Lamp is the precursor to Dyna-Lux.
