Vinel


Vinel is the visualization of code, the physical representation of inputs, captured on a piece of paper.

Inspired by both, an old record player and the modern technology of a 3D printer, my design should both play and produce. Vinel plays the inputs, transforms data into grooves.

The internet of things connects devices, objects with each other, just like Vinel connects the digital and the physical worlds.
For our Physical Computing course with this very subject, I wanted to make this link and at the same time produce something. The fact that our work finally resulted in an exhibition led me to the wish to actually produce something very unique for the visitor to take home.
Vinel works wireless with an Arduino Yun and can connect to other devices using the shiftr prototyping platform.
