PUZZLE

PUZZLE is a computer with multidimensional screens for children to experience tactile feedback when interacting with the digital screen. PUZZLE utilizes a hinge system that detects angles between screens to bring physics back to the digital. Children can create dynamic contents by folding and rotating screens.

screen-prototype

The concept device, both physical design and also software design, was prototyped through iterations of technical investigations.I prototyped 360-degree hinges that actively read the angle of connected screen and developed softwares that respond to the shape of transformed screens.

ACTIVE HINGE PROTOTYPE

 

Active hinge mechanism made of 3d printed parts and potentiometer sensors.

ENCLOSURE PROTOTYPE

 

Mock-up prototype to present form, size and aspect ratio 

SOFTWARE PROTOTYPING

 

The softwares were developed in Unity game and designed to communicate the device’s main feature which is the digital space is reflected from the physical shape of the screen.
