The Patching Zone visited OCADU this January, to work with fellow digital future graduate students and myself to create a number of projects with a wind sensor that could measure both the speed and direction of wind. I was primarily interested in creating a visualization based off of the sensor’s real-time data. This was mine.
It utilized particle systems in processing to create it. The little particles of the dandelion blow in the direction of the wind as sensed in real-time, whilst the compass also directs you in the right direction.
