Physical Space Installation Game

Looking for people who are interested in helping out on the electrical engineering side and/or set design of a installation game. Various people in the industry (theme parks and video games) should stop by during the exhibition and credit will be provided. On the electrical side it would be helping out with networking of Arduino boards to run each "gag" and be linked into a show control. On the set design side - help with the set design of the piece, lighting, and construction. The installation will take 3 players and have them "break into" a vault with various high tech security (lasers, pressure sensors, computers needing to be hacked, etc). Other examples of this type of work would be "The Tomb" and "Operation Spy" by 5wits, La Fuga by Negone (in Spain), interactive haunted houses, and theme park attractions. Message me if you have any questions. Thanks!

Easy Interactive Mirror?

Okay I had an idea to make an interactive mirror with some mirror grade acrylic and an old android phone. Simple enough I could just mount the phone behind the mirror to display the weather for ex. But wouldn't it be cooler to be able to use the capasative screen? So that is my question, how can i have the android phone recognize my touch? Maybe use a different material besides acrylic? Any suggestions? Thanks.

Strange interaction with LastPass.

If I have "LastPass" - the password manager- enabled on FireFox, every single time the browser hits a page with a login, like the comments pages, or the forum, LastPass dims the screen and tells me it is logging in to the site. Any idea of what is going on ? Whose "fault" is it ? does LastPass not do some sort of handshake with you correctly or vice versa ? Applies to FF on Android too. Steve

Her Interactive games

Does anyone here play Nancy Drew games? Don't be fooled, the games are very challenging, even for adults. The storylines are interesting and educational and the gameplay is a lot of fun. Let me know what you are playing and if you have any questions or need help. I'm playing "The Creature of Kapu Cave" right now. I've played several of the games and if you go to herinteractive.com, you will find people of all ages and genders play these games.

Interactive lights with sensors and such

I am currently working of my BFA in sculpture and I have a couple of gallery shows coming up and it would seem that my ideas are bigger than my knowledge base (which is okay by me, but sometimes frustrating). My current work revolves around posthumanism and I am working to blur the lines between human and machine, working with circuitry, xrays, and prosthetics. I have one set of work that I am currently a bit stumped with. I have three copper PCB boards that I am going to etch into circuits, but the lines of the circuits will resemble human faces. Each board has a character: the introvert, the extrovert, and the antagonist. The introvert will be silent, but I want the lights that glow behind it to flicker faster, or get brighter when the viewer nears. Essentially, he is quiet, but has a LED driven anxiety attack when people approach. I did this with a dark sensitive photosensor thinking that the viewers shadows would activate the light. While it worked in my living room, I realized that the gallery lighting would not lend itself to this method. So my next thought was a theremin that had light output instead of sound output. Possible? The next two will make sound and light. The extrovert needs to seek attention. I was hoping to figure out something that would talk back when something is making noise around it. So it would need to pick up the vibrations of someone talking about my work, or possibly even their footsteps, and then begin to "talk back" (lighting up and making noise). Intstead of sensing vibrations I was thinking that proximity might be easier so maybe an IR sensor. (?) The last one hate the second one. I was thinking I might be able to do something like this with a kit I have that allows me to plug one circuit into another, , where I would have it sense the light or sound coming from the extrovert and in turn verbally assault him. However,it is not a definite go, still lots of kinks so I am up for any solutions. I hope this is somewhat coherent to you. If you could give me any leads on where to start, or any places to get good information/products, that would be immensely appreciated. Thanks for your time!

Ideas for an interactive donation box?

p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0.0in; font-size: 12.0pt; font-family: Times New Roman; } div.Section1 { page: Section1; } I need to create a donation box for a non-profit art center where I volunteer. The box needs to be interactive.  That is, inserting a paper bill through an opening in the box, triggers a fun toyetic response, preferably not audible. Maybe something spins, a light flashes, LEDs arranged to spell "Thank you" flash on and off, etc.  The box could have four or five different openings, each with its own interactive feature. I love to get ideas from the Instructables community  as well as input on toys or electronic devices that can be adapted for this.

Interactive Sound Fence Project

I am working on a community based arts project in New Zealand. I am designing a fence which will go around a park area and I wanted to include some motion activated sounds. The sounds will be recordings of wildlife in the park area and will be triggered by people walking passed specific parts of the fence. Any suggestions as to the best way to tackle this? Thank you in advance Simon

Interactive Art Gallery Installation

Hi, I have an exhibition at the arts centre that I work at and one element of it incorporates music. Currently we have a CD player on loop, and this is frustrating some of the staff who have to listen to it all day.... so, the scenario I want is for member of general public to walk into gallery, when they get to the appropriate section they push a button which will play the CD, it would play the track then stop. If they (or another person) wanted to start from the top again, they either wait til the end or press the button again. (Or another option could be a motion sensor which, 'plays' the CD.... obviously it can't start from the top each time it detects motion! ) any thoughts ladies and gents?

Questions about MAOI interactions.

My friend and I have been working on a project, and this project has required a lot of research. I've been able to figure out most of what I need to know and now there is only one major issue left. That has to do with monoamine oxidase inhibitors. I've done some research and found a few helpful websites here and here. At the first website I found that "If you stop taking an MAOI, you should not start taking another antidepressant for two or three weeks." So, does that mean MAO inhibitors stay in your system for two to three weeks? Also, does that mean that all of the "Foods to Avoid" from the second website should be avoided for the full duration of the two to three weeks?Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How to embed interactive pictures into an Instructable?

Recently, I've been wondering if it would be possible to embed an interactive, 360 degree image into an instructable. If your not sure what Im talking about, Here is a webpage with a 360 degree image embeded into it: http://www.webrotate360.com/ Notice that you can rotate the picture of the shoe with your mouse. So my question is, would this be possible in instructables? Is there a way to embed an image like this by maybe using the html editor in instructables? If not, I think it would be a pretty cool idea.

Interact GamePad won't work (Playstation)?

Hey, Intstructable-ers. I have a question (Obiovusly): I just bought a Interact GamePad for my Playstation original from a yard sale. Now, I've bought many Playstation controllers from yard sales before and opened them up to fix simple problems or clean them, but I have no clue what the heck is wrong with this one. It worked last night, and I was able to play a couple of games with it. When I woke up in the morning to play again, nothing. na-da. The controller just, -ahem-, pooted out. Yes, I tried playing with a official Playstation controlller and another 3rd-party controller, both of which work perfectly, so it's not the controller port. I was going to ask this question on Yahoo! Answers, but half the people on there are just looking for points and don't know anything. Don't let me down, Instructables community! P.S. If it helps any, the circuit board inside the controller are almost the same design as an official Sony Playstation Controller (Not Dual Analog/ Dual Shock). The only difference is that this controller board is much simpler.

Interactive Surface creation, minimal implementation

Hey guys!This is my very first post in this awesome community. I am not a native make so please forgive me if I may cause any misundestarning with my post.I stumbled upon this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvtfD_rJ2hEI started to thinking about creating a simpler version of this, with someones face as a 3D model projecting. My background is in computer vision, so I can handle very well the 3d reconstruction of someone's face from a 2D image.My problem is that I cannot seem to find a way to create the mechanism that will raise those bars and what those bars are going to be made of. Does anyone has any clue on how to create a simple mechanism with not a very complex design?PS: I can handle very well raspberries pi, motors and software.

Interactive robot art installation on the streets of NYC

This is so intriguing to me. A NYC based artist, Kacie Kinzer, did a very interesting social experiment. She wondered if a human-like creature could traverse the sidewalks of New York City, and perhaps provide insight into human interaction and urban connectivity.So she built robots. Naturally.The artist built small robots (which were rather errily similar looking to our robot!), attached a white flag to the top stating the its destination, and let them loose. The results were surprising - not a single robot was crushed, chomped, stolen, lost or broken. All the "tweenbots", as their creator dubbed them, safely reached their destinations with the help of kindhearted citygoers.Link

Help! want to make checkerboard interactive music player

I have this mini bluetooth speaker that is really awesome and the volume it is capable of is amazing. I was showing it to the teens I work with at a youthcenter while we were sitting at a table with a checkerboard/ chessboard design on it, The speaker was sitting in one of the squares while a teen controlled the music on my phone. When another teen asked why the music was changing, he jokingly said it was because he moved the speaker to another square. That gave me an idea and the teens were interested in doing it. I want to make his joke true. somehow make it so that the speaker plays a different song for each square on the board in which it is placed. Very interactive and something that is easy to change the songs out for newer ones as time goes by. The problem is that I have no idea how to do this and I have no idea how to put it into terms I can use to search instructables for any exisiting projects I can learn from. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Raspberry Pi 3 Interactive Led Strip Wall

At the moment we're working on an interactive led screen wall for the entrance hall of our new studio. I've setup the following frame (http://i66.tinypic.com/33ll30j.jpg)  with 17meters of WS2812B addressable led strips.We're using the Neopixel library for rasp (https://github.com/jgarff/rpi_ws281x) and it works like a charm with the rasp 3. Anyway they next step is to control these ledstrips so they work as one big display. I had a look on the internet and a lot of people advices to work with the FadeCandy from Adafruits but I want to know if there are other solutions using only Python and write software to control the ledstrips. The purpose is to use the rasp's camera module like this guy did http://andydoro.com/ledmirror/images/stills/ledmirror01.jpg so when someone is entering the room, his reflection appears on the wall... Any information / tips / other solutions about how to achieve what I described above are welcome. Thanks

Do you have any method for interactive bedtime stories?

I have a question, do any of you have any method for interactive bedtime stories? When I come home from work, and it's  late, Molly's already slowly getting ready to sleep. I read her stories, we watch cartoons together, but it probably is not the best way to spend time the evening together. I don't want to play with my kid in activities that envolve motion, because I know that even after 15 minutes, Molly will awaken and will never go to sleep.

D3CRYPT3D won SXSW Interactive Innovation Award for Privacy & Security

Hey everyone! For a long time, being a modeler and working in the industry, I have always felt that Modelers get the short end of the stick.  Things get re textured, models get hijacked and studios just kind of store models and stock pile them up. Some people will even resell models that don't belong to them. I used to see it all the time. Well, my crew and I came out with a software that enables you to share and collaborate on your 3D files securely. We won the SXSW Innovation Award for Privacy & Security last month and just released our beta this week.  We would love for you all to try it out and give us your feedback so that we can make the best product possible.  If you are interested, here is the link to download -   www.d3crypt3d.net/downloadnow/ Thank you!

How do you make an Inventor assembly with parts that interact? Answered

Currently, I can use constraints to assemble parts, but when they are moved around, they simply go through each other. How can I make the parts push each other around? For example, I'm designing a paintball marker, and it has a body, bolt, trigger assembly, and various pins. How would I make the bolt catch on the trigger when it is moved rearward? How would I make the bolt go forward when the trigger is moved rearward? I'm using AutoDesk Inventor Professional 2012. Also, I have access to most current Autodesk programs if they are required.

New Interactive Collaboration Page & UI (Instructabook - social ible)

Bricobart has proposed a collaboration contest, read more: here. I guess it would be great to introduce the less-noticed collaboration feature of instructables.  Problem: I think one of the main reasons why the collaboration feature is ignored is because it's difficult to use. Difficult in a way that two or more ible members are having a hard time exchanging ideas through email. Emails are are slow and bulky compared to social networking. Also one of the problem with collabs is that the people who contributed to the write-up doesn't show-up on the credits. My Experience: My former classmate and I had the same problem. We both did the same thing, e-mailing. It also took us hours to finish a write-up. Months after my first collab another friend of mine encouraged me to do another collab, this time with the help of Facebook. The chat and group feature of FB blended perfectly with instructable's collab feature. Proposal: I think that it would be good to have a new social collaboration feature in ibles without using Facebook as a seperate medium for planning and for discussing ideas. ____________________________________________ Concept: The concept includes a designated page for social ible collaboration. The page has six main parts, the six main parts are the following. 1st.) Proposal Page: Imagine this as the forum page, it's divided into all the possible channel categories. People can post ideas of their dream project (like starting a new thread in forums).  2nd.) Find Partners: The project proposal threads are now being viewed by fellow ible members (members willing to discuss and build the project). The project proposal thread should have a "COUNT ME IN" button. Those who wants to join the project should press the "COUNT ME IN" button. 3rd.) Discussion Page: Now that you have found fellow ible members who are willing to build the proposed project, it's now time to close the thread. The thread's status is switched to "In Progress", the "COUNT ME IN" button is now greyed-out. During the discussion, collab members are redirected to a new page, the private discussion page. This page should look like a private group of Facebook. In this page, you can share photos, videos, ideas with one another. You can post on the group's wall and comment on the posts. Notifications shall be sent automatically to the "you page" once a member posts something on the group page. We need to know if everyone is ready to build the project. Once everyone has checked the "I'm Ready" check box, the project advances to the next step. *The discussion page can be accessed by fellow collab members anytime.  4th.) Write-up/ Editing Stage: This is where the traditional instructable text-editor comes in. This time with the presence of a  live chatbox, similar to FB. The chat box should also have a "upload/ attach an image" feature.  5th.) Add Contest: bricobart's idea comes in here. Collab members can join regular and special contests (collab contests). 6th.) Publish: The collab members can now publish the guide! Credits should be given to the collab members. Ex. Designer:_____, Builder:_____ , Programmer:_____, etc..... ______________________________________ I hope this helps. If the idea is too blurry, just tell me. I'll make a HTML-PHP dummy page of how it looks like.
