Online-based Project: Vision by Proxy

We were told that we were suppose to present today, but it wasn’t true. I got to class a little late and Chris had been sent home to get the helmet. Jenny and I sat at the computer, making sure to finalize everything. Updating the to do list in our google doc and making sure that we had all the objects need for the experience.

We tested the iPhone 3Gs, reserved them for next week, and tried to figure out orientation lock.

Since we were ahead of other groups and were ready to present for next week, we decided to name our experience. After some brainstorming, we came up with Vision by Proxy. To me it sounds a bit like the name of a perfume, like the name should be said in a soft female voice with a soft glow effect on an ad.

Vision by Proxy, a Remote Viewing Game
“Using ooVoo’s video conference calling, the controller on the desktop can see all 3 cameras that are mounted onto the head of a blindfolded person in another room with objects and some obstacles. The task given to them is to find objects and to place it on the coloured corresponding paper to provide a fun experience for both participants. The work illustrates how easy miscommunication can occur between people through visual/audio technology.”
