Experiencing Fiber Optics
CIID Physical Prototyping
Experiencing Fiber-Optics is an interactive display that conveys the concept of data transmission through a fiber-optic cable. The interaction starts with three distinct blocks, representing different types of data, which are inserted into the input device to activate a single transmission of bits. The data travels through a three dimensional representation of the inside of a fiber-optic cable until it reaches the output device and is displayed as a 2D light square.
