Waterfall

Interactive waterfall invites users to virtuality and reality, or somewhere between.

Overview

As an application of web-based visual implementation and physical computing, this project aims to provide twisted experience partly based on physics and daily object. Being inspired by oriental painting and Jean Baudrillard's simulacre, I tried to bring unexpected moments that will break user's mental map by creating multiple layers between virtuality and reality.

Prototyping

– Key findings

  • Improve design consistency.
  • Replace slider input to much suitable one.
  • Use real water for multi-dimensional interaction.

Flow Chart

Concept

I tried to create particle that pierce characteristic of both virtual and real. Consequently with the inspiration of oriental painting, abstract black and white is chosen as overall tone & manner. Third dimension of layer is generated by hand motion with the texture of oriental ink.

Prototyping 2 & User Test

- Insights

  • Combine all interface in one device.
  • Simplify leap motion visual.
  • Improve serial-communication system(timing and feasibility).
