Living Orb

Jonathan Giroux

The Orb consists of a sphere, containing a mini-computer and sensors, and covered by LEDs. By manipulating it, for instance by spinning it around, the Orb reacts by turning on or off LEDs according to some logics, which can be called a game. Ultimately, users hold in their hands the gaming console, the controller, and the spherical screen, all at once.

The project Living Orb aims at developing the design and creation of such devices and their dedicated games. The project is fully open-source, both for hardware and software, and seeks to federate a community of makers, so that everyone can build their custom Orb, invent new games using innovative approaches to space and time, and share their findings with the community.
