Insektroniken

Insektroniken behave like primitive insects in terms of communication and perception. Initiated by darkness each entity starts to vivaciously communicate with others by fast light flashes and buzzing sounds, activating one another to endure their existence that can only be silenced by brightness.

A mechanical bicycle lock, like a U-lock, should be attached to a solid and immobile object like a rack to ensure safety. Nevertheless, these racks are quite rare and popular, thus often occupied and although a bicycle lock prevents the bike from being carried away, as it fixes single parts like the frame or the wheels, other parts can be dismounted. Therefore an electronic system, consisting of several sensors, can extend the range of protection with only few components and less effort.

Electromagnetic Harvester

The omnipresence of electromagnetic fields is implied just by simple current flow. We are surrounded by electromagnetic fields which we produce for information transfer or as a by-product of electric infrastructure. Many of those fields are very capacitive and can be harvested with coils and high frequency diodes. Accordingly, I built special harvesting devices that are able to tap into several electromagnetic fields to exploit them and charge a regular battery.

The telephone is an everyday object that connects people. Regrettably the communication reduces the spectrum of perception to the hearing sense. This results in a neglect of emotions. In my project I propose to add the haptic sense to expand this spectrum. My augmented telephone connects two people, spatially separated, on different levels through special modules.
