Flip phone

A very exiting concept phone from Kristian Larsen who is a interaction designer and student at Designskolen Kolding. A phone that differentiates it self from the norm of a smartphone and incorporates the physical product into the interaction with what’s on the screen, creating a unified experience. After the introduction of the smartphone, the industrial design of the devices has converged into all looking more or less the same.

This phone is trying to change that.

If your are interested you can read a lot more about the project and see all the video clips from the whole process on the website:

// Arduino to Flash [video included]

In one of my classes at the university we have been working with the Arduino. I mentioned this wonderful gadget earlier but briefly to sum up it’s a prototyping unit you quite can program to communicate with other things. It works as kind of a link between your computer and another electronic device. Anyway we managed to make the Arduino communicate with a simple Flash animation. By installing a light sensor on the Arduino we made it possible to move an object in the Flash animation pure magic!….Because the video was used as documentation it’s in Danish.
