Afraid of steeping into water lest your Armani gets ruined? Aren’t you missing on the intuitive little things that make life worthwhile? To make the predicament a little less teasing for million of conscious human beings, Mark Burton has designed an interactive display, which he calls Waterboard. This installation allows people to play with water without coming into contact with it. The arrangement consists of an opaque board measuring 2.2m X 8m, four projectors and four cameras for back-projection and detection. The user is called upon to draw lines on whiteboard and thereby try and influence water’s course. Alternatively, the user may use any part (or the whole) of his body to change the course of water. The basic point emphasized that whatever the obstacle, water will continue to follow its course. To add to the realism, at some places water become murky and may even show the presence of some life forms. Winner of 2007 RSA Design directions award, Waterboard is an entertaining concept and provides interesting educational experience too. Jump for more pics and a video.
