LiveWindow is a project that attempts to translate the physicality of the real world into the virtual. By viewing LiveWindow on the web, avisitor can see a visual representation of the state of the physical space at anytime.
On the physical side the space is wired to sense for floor vibration. These values are then relayed to a browser window. If the room senses vibration, the window begins to shake, and its text falls from the force.
LiveWindow also works with other inputs: a light sensory for ambient light changes the background color of the window, a microphone picks up room volume and changes the size of the window, and the amount of movement in the room causes the window to move around accordingly.
LiveWindow installed at the Nordic Interactive Conference (Copenhagen, Denmark – 10/31/01):
