Re: RAY

Yup, yup. It's definitely meant to be used in the home where it's not a crisis type situation. The radio and gps messaging are meant as a backup to when cell service is down. For example, Hurricane Sandy wiped out cell service in nyc, and that's why many took to twitter to communicate. The two butto...

Re: RAY

Hi Choto, Super intersting point of view and definitely a point that I wrestled with was whether or not to include a crank or some type of generative system...No question there is value in crank for a solution that focuses on light and a radio and I understand there is a strong association of emerge...

Re: RAY

Hi Keno - Thanks for the feedback. The gps messaging system can be preprogrammed with two messages that can be transmitted therefore the two buttons on the control. This would be preprogrammed with a computer ahead of time. Also, the alert, and SOS modes are used to message local authorities when th...

Re: Storyboard - Experience Digitization

Thanks for the feedback - I really appreciate it. I've made a couple of modifications to hopefully clarify the message of the concept. For this round, it seemed like most of the comments focused on the 'record' portion, so the 'tune' and 'relive' remain the same other than some minor changes. If you...

Re: Storyboard - Experience Digitization

I don't think there is a camera on the band, I think you eyes are the camera, hears are the microphone, etc. It's recording all of your senses as sensed by you. That's my reading at least.

In an effort to expand my skill base, I sought to create a storyboard for a conceptual project based around capturing ideas, tuning experiences and 'reliving' those tuned experiences. My goals for the project were to 1. practice telling a compelling story and 2.practice illustrating a storyboard. I'...
