inflaming light

Glimming output

In this demonstrator for the potential of printing Cirquids on paper a structure with two collateral conductive paths built to regulating the power supply of an integrated LED. The device serves as a wind or vibration sensor and serves an interesting interaction form which holds a rich metaphor: by softly blowing into the device, the LEDs is flickering and glimming up. This evokes the association of inflaming a fire or breating life into a lifeless object.

Simultaniously  the soft shaking of the paper structure itself gives the user a visual feedback about having received his or her input – the blown air. Another charming fact is the low amount of electronics and material taht is required to build such a device.
