We’ve seen many strange controllers over the last few years, and now some smart folks out there have come up with the Channels project that uses buckets as a controller, allowing folks to paddle through a digital dreamscape. Each bucket features plastic spoons to monitor the flow in each bucket while a projector shows a minimalist 3D environment on the wall.
Another interesting project is the Cadence Chair, featuring an antique rocking chair outfitted with an accelerometer to align ribbons of light, and if you fiddle around with it in the right manner, a hidden video will be played. Both projects are from New York University’s Interactive Telecommunications Project and you can check out both videos after the jump.
