Interactive Inflatable Balloon
Having some fun demoing a digital baloon inflated from the physical world. I used a really interesting anemometer/wind sensor from modern device. This little sensor uses a technique called hot wire which involves heating an element to a constant temperature and measuring the electrical power that is required to maintain the heated element at temperature as the wind changes. With wind variance the sensor produces voltage/values. These values are sent through the serial port. Once the values are pipped into rhino they alter a series of relationships that inflates a 3-dimensional balloon.
