Play Like a 1920’s Phone Operator with This Switchboard Gaming Interface

Thu, 04/07/2016 - 11:02 -- rprice

Hello, Operator! is the creation of Mike Lazar-Walker, who works as a research assistant at the Playful Systems group of MIT’s Media Lab. The game is designed to simulate the minute-to-minute tasks of a 1920’s-era telephone operator. The software for the game was written in an abstracted manner so it could be run on any hardware—a Mac mini, an iPad, or on the hardware panel that he fabricated on his own to better simulate the experience.

From Paris, With Smell

Wed, 07/09/2014 - 10:08 -- rprice

In studies, the descriptors used on menus or food labels have been shown to exert a huge influence on what flavours consumers subsequently report experiencing. It’s easily to imagine a similar effect by which an oSnapper will perceive croissants as more buttery and toast-like, and less floury, say, or sweet, than someone who is not trying to summarise the aroma using Vapor Communications’ limited palette. It’s even possible that the oSnap app might even induce a new synaesthesia, in which chocolate is associated with purple and onions “taste” turquoise.

Timeline | drupal.org

Thu, 12/29/2011 - 08:58 -- rprice

Timeline is a DHTML-based AJAXy widget for visualizing temporal information.

This Drupal module is an integration for a JavaScript timeline widget developed by the SIMILE project.
It works in a similar way as Google Maps but for time-based events. The SIMILE Timeline (and Ajax) libraries can be used from the SIMILE server or can be downloaded and installed into your (local) Drupal installation.
