The project draws inspiration from interactive children’s books. Particularly the ones by Bruno Munari, which explores the interaction with paper in non-traditional forms.
The purpose then was to make something analogous using a laptop. How can a user interact with it besides using mouse and keyboard?
See previous posts for more precedents and process.
The project uses 3 different inputs: camera, light sensor and speaker. Each planet respond for only one of them — except for the first one, which is supposed to be a tutorial for the other parts.
This was my last prototype before the final version. All interactions and navigation working. Drawings still in sketch version — though the final is a sort of sketch, too!
