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)

We all chose this minor because we like to build
things and that’s exactly what we did at this assignment. But it would have
been nice if we also learned some more about the programming as well. We were
just too busy building prototypes.
Nevertheless this was a fun and instructive project to
do. We were able to actually face real-life problems for example producing the
Led-diffusers. Something in theory can seem quite easy,
but when you scale it up to 400 Led-diffusers the costs suddenly either
sky-rocketed or the production time would become way to long! In the end we
believe we found a good solution to the problem and were happy to show of our
This project isn’t over yet! We knew from the start
that it would be highly unlikely that we would have been able to deliver a
finished product in just four weeks time. Besides the delay in the delivery of
the electronics there are still some minor issues we need to work out. For
example the assembly of al the pixels and the construction of the actual frame.
This project may technically be over, but we hope to keep contributing to the
project and be able to assemble the actual kinetic mirror early next year!
