Ping! Mass MoCa Kidspace

PING! Is a sound generative, wearable project made for MASS MoCa Kidspace with Jesse Fleming.

PING! is meant to create a query from one person to another, establishing a network. A user is provided with a helmet with a 360 degree array of ultrasonic sensors, which pick up objects within 20 feet from the user and send out pings in all direction. When the user moves through space, their distance from others and the environment are converted into an auditory feedback. An emerging soundscape is formed between the user and everything around them.
