I tried to imagine controls for people who were sight impeded or try to see how I controlled my own music when the controls were out of reach.
Since both ideas landed me in not so fertile ground, I kept on thinking for an alternative. Thinking while sitting in a desk can get tiresome, being on that chair for so long makes you want to strech out...Eureka! When I streched out in my chair I discovered I was reaching out to spots in my chair that I couldn´t see, only see.
So this is how the idea of placing buttons around an office chair so that moving through the music will mean yo needed to strech out was born.
Due to my lack of expertise in serial communication, I decided to use the Arduino Leonardo in a way similar to what I did for the Moon Lander. I had to modify the keys and add two more and with Jing Wen´s help figure a new logic for them to work in the smoothest way possible. I also added one more pin in order to place the vibrating haptic motor, which didn't work in this environment, as it was only sensed by one of the people who tried it. So probably I either needed to have a larger motor or pass more current through the motor I was using.
