Yarbus was a remarkably well-built looking eye-tracking application for Tiger, by Jason Babcock. The data could also
be streamed over the network?in this case to the next machine over?and then repurposed to do something like display a
kind of trippy gnat-swarm pattern, which would track his pupil?s movement.
Michael Jefferson?s Slumberlight uses proximity sensors to light up a photograph at a distant friend or family
member?s location?he used the example of his 3-year-old son and 95-year-old grandmother, who would feel closer together
knowing the other person had also gone to bed.
Too Fast For Tracks by Christopher Hall was vaguely reminiscent of the
Sketch-a-Move, but actually real this time?by using IR
sensors, one could create a wireless racetrack for the toy car.
Still Here by Morgan Barnard featured a bizarre color-based remote system for altering the visual and narrative
directions of a pre-produced film in real time.
Presence frames, by Matty Sallin, have integrated motion detectors and network connections. Each tells the other?via
an Internet connection, of course?when someone (presumably the person whose picture you use in the frame) walks in
front of its counterpart, and lights up accordingly to signify presence.
Bubbles of a Note, by Russalette Magbanua, Yu-Chen Chiu, and Min-Jeong Kang, are a series of bamboo xylophone-like
sensors that triggered bubbles in tubes of fluid?guess we could only call it Snorksesque, eh?
