Honda SMS Test-Drive
The Sudden Motion Sensor is designed to detect unusually strong vibrations, sudden changes in position or accelerated movement, such as falls, that can damage the hard disk.
Around 2007, I produced a prototype with the intent to promote Honda motorcycles. The prototype used a custom made patch inside Quartz Composer.
By reading the sensor data and transmitting it to a composition containing the graphics, the user could interact with the application by tilting the notebook in different directions.
The combined experience of physical and software was an entertaining way to promote the brand.
More about the SMS
The Sudden Motion Sensor (SMS) is Apple's motion-based data protection system used in their notebook computer systems. Apple introduced the system January 1, 2005 in its refreshed PowerBook line, and included it in the iBook line July 26, 2005.
Since that time, Apple has included the system in all of their non-SSD portable systems (since October 2006), now the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.
My technical knowledge in creative coding is a benefit throughout the whole design and creative process. I am passionate about the idea of merging data and technology with a unique approach to the development of creativity and content. I develop and constantly research emerging technologies, from software programming languages and frameworks, to open hardware.
