Carpet

I will build an interactive carpet platform, sandwich style: carpet, electronics, foam, more carpet. I’m going for localized interactivity using lilypad arduinos. Each arduino will have at least one form of sensor input and one form of output. Input=pressure sensors built from conductive foam. Output=voice chips.

  1. The basic hardware construction will be a challenge, no doubt. It would be useful to envision a few scenarios that could be implemented, , once the hardware is working. In other words, what could you do with it once it is working? It would be nice to see that the effort put into making the magic carpet actually pays off in some interesting results. I can imagine that the various voices talk to one another in a weird conversation about the people who are charging around the carpet.
