The idea was to create an artificial creature that gets bored and expresses its boredom. Bora gets bored, if you don’t talk to her and it gets bored, when you speak to her for more than a minute. She expresses her boredom by sighing and her eyes (LED’s) are dimming slowly. In order to establish interactive “communication” with Bora we used an arduino board and the max/MSP and arduino environment. A project of Msc. Media Technology students Stelios Giannoulis and Dunya Kirkali developed for the Artificial Creatures Workshop of Msc. Media Technology program.
