the mapchair project goes on.. month ago i bought some black IKEA Vago chairs. the chasing is great for attaching the matrix and hiding the electronics.
there will be two versions of the chair. one with an array of vibrator motors and one with a matrix of metal pins. the pins will be clustered as continents. each continent will be heated by one peltier element.
the heated pin version will display news and catastrophes in real time. the vibration arrays will display seismic data.
