The Anemone @iOiSphere


The Anemone is all about the simplest form of physical user interface Рthe switch. Two hundred and two bespoke illuminated toggle switches designed and built in house are used in this interactive installation to create a massive programmable interface. While users are able to create their own code for it using the specially written open-source Arduino library, the Anemone can be played as it is. Using only the toggle switches and the LEDs on them, you can make tunes with an audio sequencer, trigger sounds effects,  play Pong and discover secret switch combinations to control things in the room. The Anemone also known as the iOiSphere was commissioned by The Institute of Imagination for their HQ in London. It was designed and built by Shawn Brown, Sam Lanyon, Al Parker & James Torbett.
