Physical Computing

Mes-ON is a physical computing art project that was part of the cool stuff exhibition at London college of communication and was made with Arduino & Processing. It is an experimental project which investigates how sounds affect our cognitive processes: such as memory and ability to focus. It measures user’s memory capacity by generating a sequence of colours that the user has to repeat in the same order. The sequence starts out with one colour gradually adding extra colours one by one, and therefore getting more complex. There are 3 stages of the experiment: user who plays the game is subjected to: a pleasant sound a slightly noisy sound a very noisy/annoying sound During each stage user can see their success rate on a Progress Bar and therefore notice and compare their results depending on the sound played.

Our Inspiration came from this video on how sounds affects our cognitive processes
