Hexagons – Human-Activated Engagement
Programming, Interactivity, UX
Hexagons attracts, entertains, and engages an audience by transforming a blank wall into an exciting, interactive experience. A projector displays a wall of still, orderly, and colorful hexagons while a camera detects movement in front of the wall. When someone (or something) moves in front of the camera, the hexagons reflect this movement by applying force to the same area. The user becomes the "user interface", and every movement made creates an engaging experience where the physical influences the virtual. If no movement occurs for a while, the system of hexagons will manipulate itself randomly to attract a new audience to interact.
