Shadow Party – Halloween Trick [PCOMP Midterm]

‘Shadow party’ is an interactive shadow play especially for Halloween. For our Intro to Physical computation midterm Hadar Ben – Tzur and I were paired together to create a Halloween trick. After a few Ideas were tossed in the air we chose ‘Shadow Party’ as our project concept. The user is invited to control the dance movements while interacting with three different knobs and explore the surprising elements in the scene.

First sketches:
As a prototype, we laser cut a skeleton figure and created moving joints, in order to explore the movement and shadows using servo motors and LED lights.

 Later in the process we designed a 3d model as a mockup before fabricating, this helped us understand proportions and dimensions
