I’ve been working on ways to combine my natural science illustrations with tangible interfaces. This demo shows an “X-ray device” I created using an Arduino, a Raspberry Pi, a little screen, a few sensors, and a wooden box I created out of poplar. For our class assignment, we had to draw the skeletal layer, musculature and fur/outside of an animal of our choice. This demo features drawings from a few of my classmates: Angie Peace (cougar), Megan Ellis (tree kangaroo) and Kristina Krajcik (rattlesnake).
