Update (Nov 18th 2010)

Spent much of the day rebuilding my Max/Msp standalone application, after trying out various new ideas on how the interface should look. The previous versions were originally designed for a gallery installation planned for 2011 (consisting of a large printed map with RGB leds) although, as my current university project requires me to hand in a prototype of the work, i thought this would be a good opportunity to improve on the interface design and try out some new ideas.

Firstly, I found a great map from NASA, which has kindly been released into the public domain (details: HERE).

I’ve also changed the locations of a few of the Pachube data feeds, primarily to give each of them more space, so they are not as grouped together (as seen in previous versions). I’ve also changed the interface panels (on the top and bottom), by lowering the alpha channel to give a sort of transparent/glass style to the interface.

Hopefully this helps to make the standalone app more aesthetically pleasing to view, although i did have to add circular transparent shapes to surround the RGB LED points, to hopefully help focus the eye on each LED point on the map, and not to get lost in the complexity of the map itself.

All in all it took most of the day to finish, and its now 1:53am….Will try and upload a video of the updated project tomorrow.

Please check back for further details, thanks. Stats In Sound
