Skintimacy

Welcome-e1378760972313

Skintimacy is an interface that allows for the manipulation of electronic-based processes through touch. Depending on whom you touch, the way your bodies make contact influences the control of both analog instruments and digital setups. Alexander Müller-Rakow and his team developed Skintimacy by implementing an Arduino microcontroller to transfer data to software platforms in order to provide diverse opportunities for a playful control of audio and video. This kit, devoloped at Design Research Lab is intended to facilitate the symbiotic relationship between physical computing and the sense of touch.
