Electric tape is not "soldering"

We want to use light for giving instructions, not as a simple feedback. However, everything we said about people following the light and understanding how the system works were assumptions. To understand how people would really react to a floor that lights up, tries to guide you, we decided to test it on people. We started building 3 or 4 floor tiles so that we can start testing.
After some trials and errors, we managed to create 3 tiles that we can control with switches. However we could not manage to create a nice tile with proper lighting until we discovered christmas lights with their LEDs already connected to eachother and built-in switches.

B, B, B...

We managed to make one tile control sound and music when pressure is applied. Now, we are going to produce more to test the relationship between the users and the interactive floor: How the floor interacts with one user or more and what kind of an interaction it is.

The Corridor

The corridor is a musical instrument embedded into the floor. It creates an unexpected interaction for the people who pass by.

Jumping DJ

Jumping DJ is a concept where users create their own music by interacting with special surfaces on the floor. There may be three different ways they interact with these surfaces: They step on them to play a single tune, they step on them to start/stop a loop or they may stand on them to keep the music playing.

The first video shows a person playing the game by herself. It actually shows how I could not wait for others to arrive to test the concept! The second one shows how 3 people can interact with it at the same time.
