Interactive gestures

Workshop with Yehwan Song

“During the workshop we’ve invented a new web-interaction with the hand and body gesture. The unique gestures found in our daily habits have been combined with mobile touch screen, gyro sensor, web camera and microphones and created new narration in the websites on the screen. As we use specific gestures to express certain feelings, we need to create more sophisticated and diverse user web-interaction. This workshop was the first step of inventing and exploring diverse user interaction and sophisticated web-narration.” Yehwan Song

Jamy Herrmann – MEMOGRAM

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Nieder, Pauline Saglio

Today, for many, the memories that remain are only those of images taken with digital cameras. Through this continuous storage process, we offload those moments by trusting instantaneous backups. MEMOGRAM challenges this delegation by offering a time capsule in the form of tickets, accompanying our memories with textual clues and descriptions. www.memogram.ch

Nora Fatehi – Mirror Me-rror

MEDIA & INTERACTION DESIGN

Nora Fatehi – Mirror Me-rror

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Nieder, Pauline Saglio

In an environment where the line between digital and tangible is becoming increasingly thin, having an existence in immaterial spaces implies shaping and maintaining an avatar that is often created in one’s own image. Living in these in-between worlds inevitably leads to the development of a more or less strong connection with one’s own digital representations. This is notably the case of my own avatar, with whom I share more than just a well-defined clothing style. In Mirror Me-rror, she and I become one. By using my physical and digital data to influence her abilities as my “virtual self”, I find myself constantly connected to her. With this project, I question the relationship that each of us nurtures with our digital identities and offer a gamified perspective of our own lives.

Laure Wasser – Eventa

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Laure Wasser – Eventa

Diploma project with Stephane Halmai-Voisard, Maddalena Casadei

Eventa is an adapted diary that is designed for elderly people with cognitive problems, particularly relating to memory, and can be essential in enabling them to remain independent in their own home while offering complete peace of mind. On a tablet of their choice, elderly people use a digital app that enables them to contact their loved ones by text message or phone call. It also provides them with a diary that emits sounds to remind them of their daily events. The simplified keyboard is integrated into the shell of the tablet. It allows direct, non-touch navigation in the application. The device evolves as the disease worsens. In addition, caregivers and relatives can easily interact with Eventa by text message or by adding events to monitor the patient.

Loris Briguet – FM42

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Nieder, Pauline Saglio

“My project aims to demystify FM synthesis and to offer a new approach to its programming. After analysing various FM synthesizers and their interface, I identified two major problems: - The difficulty of understanding how they work - The complexity of sound exploration My project offers two objects to remedy these problems: a guide, based on texts in FM Theory & Applications, which enables the user to understand FM synthesis in a theoretical way, and a synthesizer that enables the user to explore the basics of synthesis with a more hands-on approach, thanks to an interface that offers all the controls without “menu diving”. These two objects provide the user with an ideal introduction to electronic music.”

Iris Moine – Twist

MEDIA & INTERACTION DESIGN

Iris Moine – Twist

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Nieder, Pauline Saglio

Twist was thought out as part of the upcoming industrial design exhibition at mudac - Musée cantonal de design et d’arts appliqués contemporains. The aim of this project is to engage children’s curiosity about design, for whom the idea of visiting a museum is often not the most exciting. How can we encourage a stimulating visit and discovery of the exhibits? By bringing out an object from the exhibition, the Bold chair by Big-Game studio, this project transforms it into an interactive installation. Guided by a character on screen, children are invited to interact with certain parts of the chair: sitting, pinching, turning, etc. These interactions trigger games, and information is presented in a playful way, thus creating a direct and memorable relationship with the object and raising awareness of design.

Dorian Jovanovic – IFTTA

MEDIA & INTERACTION DESIGN

Dorian Jovanovic – IFTTA

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Nieder, Pauline Saglio

IFTTA (If This Then Authenticate) is a modular authentication kit that allows users to design passwords to access their digital environment. Nowadays the majority of online services require complex authentication from their users. However, our ability to manage our passwords is becoming time consuming: we forget, make mistakes and retype. By default, we have accepted the present systems in place: double verification, SMS, phone calls, e-mails, etc. What if we tried something different? A more personal approach for example. This kit reflects the way we want to view our relationship with passwords. Each of the proposed modules involves a distinct mnemonic interaction: touch, position in space, hearing and sight. These elements can be added up as well in order to design a personalised authentication system.

Julie Racaud – Fealing

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Julie Racaud – Fealing

Diploma project with Julie Richoz, Maddalena Casadei, Stephane Halmai-Voisard

Fealing is a collection of creative tools whose development is based on the field of art therapy. The project features a therapeutic approach that uses creation as an intermediary, allowing people to express themselves in ways other than with words. In this theme, the creative process, the emotions, the sensations felt, and the personality are paramount. However, behind the artists’ tools lies a level of requirement and expectations that can potentially limit the user’s creativity. I have therefore chosen to offer original tools that allow us to transform this level of requirement into a quest for discovery and to help us express our creativity through different gestures, forms and textures.

Malik Sobgoui – Oblique Reasoning

MEDIA & INTERACTION DESIGN

Malik Sobgoui – Oblique Reasoning

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Nieder, Pauline Saglio

Nowadays, almost all of us have adopted the unconscious reflex of pulling out our smartphone when we are faced with some form of loneliness or passivity. Hence, it has become difficult for us to cope with waiting without the help of our cell phones. The aim of Oblique Reasoning is to invite users to question notions of attention economy and FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) while offering, in the manner of Oblique Strategies, reflections and alternatives. By recording unread notifications and quantifying them in units of time, this portable device offers us the possibility to step back and rethink our relationship with the smartphone.

Ignacio Pérez – Overloaded.supply

MEDIA & INTERACTION DESIGN

Ignacio Pérez – Overloaded.supply

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Nieder, Pauline Saglio

In 2020, we reached a tipping point with the mass of man-made artefacts exceeding the biomass on our planet. This is mainly due to an economic system of manufacturing and consumption where the overabundance of objects has become the norm. Overloaded.supply is a semi-autonomous system that exploits the control of creation algorithms in order to question current patterns of design, production and legislation. To do so, the installation allows users, via a physical interface, to control an intangible, invisible and vast universe of objects where they can take possession of them through a fictitious patent document. This document will be stored on a dedicated website that acts as a repository of already protected objects that may or may not be produced. overloaded.supply

Aurélien Pellegrini – Pump and Surf

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Nieder, Pauline Saglio

Pump and Surf encourages internet users to find out how much energy is spent when they are surfing the internet. Before being able to view a website, internet users are asked to make a physical effort similar to the energy required to convey the data that will enable the site to be displayed. Through interactive experiences and graphic visualisations, Pump and Surf leads users to take the measure of the quantity of energy involved in the exchange of information, to the point of feeling them physically.

Diane Thouvenin – Sun Connection

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Nieder, Pauline Saglio

What time is it at Hortense’s in Montreal? What’s the weather like at Alexandre’s in Tokyo? When I communicate with my loved ones, scattered all over the world, I am disconnected from my physical time-space. Sources of constant artificial light and windows on the digital world, screens replace the sun as a space-time reference point. Sun Connection enables you to reconnect with your loved ones through a delocalised sun. Everyone is free to use their own physical and digital space with a luminous and colourful presence, to transpose themselves into another time and space.

Constellations

Workshop

Constellations is a one-week workshop held by Béatrice Lartigue for the first year Bachelor M&ID students in November 2018. The idea behind the workshop is to explore the invisible physical process of electrical conduction. Using Touchboards, students explored different ways of giving form to this idea of electrical conduction by creating diverse projects using sound, video projection and/or installation.

André Andrade – 300 000 km/s

MEDIA & INTERACTION DESIGN

André Andrade – 300 000 km/s

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

The probable future expansion of the territory of Man towards Mars will bring us to communicate through an interplanetary Internet. The distance between the two planets will not physically allow the immediacy of the Internet as we know it on Earth. My project highlights the limit of the communication speed through a simplified visualization of a permanent ping (round-trip time) between Earth and Mars. In a world where everything is accelerating, 300’000 km/s symbolically illustrates the limits of physics and evokes a patience that we are not used to anymore.

Giulio Barresi – Tools for Connected Humans

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

Nowadays, smartphones are seen as an extension of the human being. Both a tool and a distraction, these devices make it difficult to focus due to a digital overload of social interactions. The ability to interact with others without a connected devices is fading away. As an interaction designer, I question our actual relationship with technology face its utterly promises to shape a better world. In the search for space for more disconnected interactions, I designed Tools for Connected Humans. A series of connected devices ready to help the user disconnect from connectivity.

Luca Kasper – Dyne Modular System

MEDIA & INTERACTION DESIGN

Luca Kasper – Dyne Modular System

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

Dyne is a modular synthesiser with a tangible interface. Instead of being controlled by fine settings and values, each instrument’s soft surface turns our hands’ gestures and the forces we apply into sound. While modular synthesisers usually have potentiometers and switches, the musical experience of Dyne revolves around the movements and limitations of our body. It gives us a new way to approach sound synthesis, oscillating between our haptic perception of the system and its own sensitivity.

The Center for Counter-Productive Robotics

MEDIA & INTERACTION DESIGN

The Center for Counter-Productive Robotics

Workshop with Thibault Brevet, Marc Dubois

In this day and age, robots are presented as the embodiment of precision, speed and efficiency. And they are: working relentlessly, day and night on factory floors around the world, churning out goods faster than ever. As a consequence their practical use is mostly limited to capitalistic logics expecting return on investment, or academic logics expecting research publications. The Center for Counter-Productive Robotics is an island where these concerns are thrown out of the window, and robots are deliberately approached with failure, laziness and clumsiness in mind. In this way the center develops a more human-centric approach to robotics.

Salomé Chatriot – Distal Extension

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Cyril Diagne, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

The global context of personal and intimate data diffusion and the associated challenges enabled me to open a discussion on the contemporary medical sector and on the cognitive evolutions linked to the development of new technologies. This Rube Goldberg machine shows a chain reaction similar to the breath’s journey within the human body, thanks to the combination of electronic devices and a person’s sensory input. The spectator corporally extends himself spatially thanks to the real time interaction of his main vital functions with a physical and digital environment.

Stella Speziali – Tangibles Worlds

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Cyril Diagne, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

Tangible worlds is a project combining virtual reality and tactile sensations, allowing us to feel as close as possible to the virtual elements present in the installation. My research aims to make sure that the user doesn’t limit himself by simply observing the virtual universe, but interacts with the material within and become attentive of the feedback through his sensations and feelings that come by touching these textures. The installation is composed of three different boxes. Each box contains an IR distance sensor, which detects when a hand is inserted and display the virtual world attributed to the box. This new virtual world surrounds the user. A sensor is placed on each wall within the boxes, this sensor recognizes the hand and activates an animation inside the virtual world. I tried to map the sensors in the virtual universe so that a little clue is given to the user and will lead him to trigger the animations.

The FOMO is a new word in our dictionnary. But what does it mean ? FOMO stands for “Fear Of Missing Out”. It is a compulsive concern that one might miss an opportunity or satisfying event for example, often aroused by our close relationship with social media websites. Imagine yourself alone in the wild city, going through a well deserved digital detox but yet hungry for new social interactions. Is there any way to find your path to the next event planned in your calendar ? FOMO Survival Kit offer you an urban survival kit that will take you to all the events you intend to go. Through a unique set of three connected object, you will be able to know the essential parameters of any social event, who, when and where.

Mylène Dreyer – Scribb

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Cyril Diagne, Cédric Duchêne, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

Scribb is a computer game in which the physical area scanned by the mouse is an integral part of the interaction. The player must draw some black areas, detected by the mouse, to be able to evolve in the game. So, in the same time, he has to manage the position of the mouse and the surface on which it is placed. This double reading questions our way of switching from digital to analog. The mouse, diverted from its usual role, is not only used as an extension of the hand, but as a physical object influenced by its environment.

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Cyril Diagne, Cédric Duchêne, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo

The Ptolemy Mission is an interactive installation that encourages to experience the excitement of exploration by taking a look at everyday things from a different perspective. The project originated from my passion for the Space Exploration and my admiration of the beauty of the Universe. I wanted to show that ordinary objects we hold in our hands and think of them as simple and familiar can, in reality, be far from our understanding, like remote planets observed through a telescope. Exploring such ordinary objects can be as fascinating and surprising as exploring faraway planets.

Deltu is a delta robot with a personality that interacts with humans via two iPads. Depending on its mood, it plays with the user who is faced with an artificial intelligence simulation, who appreciates the small pleasures of life, sometimes too much. The relationship we have with robots/AI that have been created to enhance our performance, but have become a source of learning, is unique and exciting. The android’s place in society has not yet been de ned and remains to be determined; for me it is the best source of inspiration.
