bangMe @ the bang gang party

bangMe is an physical interface constructed by unused objects from everyday life (CD box, switches, LEDs, springs). bangMe works like an button that can activate a visual on the screen. Event’s participants can play along with the reactive moving images (various interesting video clips downloaded from the Internet) by hitting bangME interface¬†continuously. The signals from left and right switch are serially transmitted by telephone cable to the custom application built by max/MSP/Jitter.

The USB joystick is also used as another program-controlled interface for the image manipulation.
