Laser Cabinet

What looks first like a simple wooden piece of furniture is actually filled with lasers, motors and electronics. Press any of the two side buttons and the cabinet starts to buzz, displaying some old fashioned game through its surface in a surprising fashion.

The whole object is an exercise in quick prototyping, created during the workshop “Handcrafted Technology” by Camille Scherrer at HEAD – Geneva. It uses a laser, two mirrors mounted on stepper motors and an arduino as microcontroller.

This project has been on display at the following exhibitions:

Game Gazer, SwissNex, San Francisco, 2013

UCLA Game Art Festival, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, 2013

Horizon by Venus Patrol, MoCA, Los Angeles, 2013

Lift Conference 2012, CICG, Geneva, 2012

It has been featured on Nouvo.ch and on ARMdevices.net.
