Let’s get in touch
We did a lot of experiments. Here are some examples of our tryouts.
Wood is a living material. so we started to create a moving wooden surface.
Wood as a switch -> It was too fragile
Wood as a display -> It already exists
Wood as a display | switchy? -> It is too fragile and not really useful.
So we were thinking about another combination. This time, a logical combination: We combined wood and a conductive material. Here you can see wood and conductive ink. Don’t wondering about the burned color of the wood. It was a tryout to create a stronger wood grain without a sandblaster.
Here is our trial and error. The question was: how thick should wood be to stay stable and how thin could it be, so light shines through?
Which leads us to ‘The real E-Wood?’ At the moment it is a tryout of wood + arduino capacitive sensor + LEDs. Our further steps will be to create a real interaction between a person and wood. The goal is to create a haptic-, visual-, auditive ‘E-Wood sensation’.
