Building a Singing Tree with Raspberry Pi for a Magical Techno-Forest
(For a more detailed description of the process, please see my workbook here.)
For our room-scale end of term class project where we built a techno-forest experience, I was assigned (along with my codeveloper Billy Karnchanapee) the role of creating a “singing tree” that needed to be interactive and contain a puzzle for people to solve. With Billy’s expertise with musical theory and design, we set out to split the task equally, where I would take the lead in the physical experience, and Billy would take the lead in implementing code and experience design. We would later work together to integrate the tree with the remaining puzzles created by the rest of the class to create our magical forest experience.
