New depth sensors such as the one embedded in the MS Kinect system work in real-time, enabling to create an instant 3D scan of objects. In this project, we are exploring a large-scale installation that demonstrates this by a 400+ array of motors and LEDS. This work includes interaction design, hard-coding and lots of soldering etc. The result will be put on exhibit on various international shows.(Expert: Jouke Verlinden)




De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

Prototyping of Led diffusers

the cheapest and best way to do this was with thermoforming process. Then
by a lot of trial and error experiments with thickness and types of plastics we
came out with the solution: "vikureen plaat" of 1 mm thickness.



Here is a 3D concept of the way we want to make and connect  the LD’s:

We make a real study of how the light duffused with this LD:



Now the BIG CHALLENGE is to make 400 LD’s. We will try to do 100 times 4 LD, because the
method to have a non-folded diffuser requires precision and 2 people.
