This Happened Bristol Talk

Data, Internet of Things, Physical App

Creation of a desktop flipdot display for This Happened Bristol.


I was asked to talk at an interaction design event in Bristol on one of my projects, and decided to talk about the process and what I learned from our collaboration with the Met Office creating generative waves on a large flip dot display.


The format of the talk was a fifteen minute overview ,and the organisers asked each of the speakers to bring along an object that represented the subject of their talk. Flip dot is such a tactile experience that talking about it or showing a film of it only goes someway to explaining the qualities, so I decided to make a miniature version of it with the wave app to demo.
