Here are some of the photos of how the monitor looks like now. It’s made out of acrylic and the monitor is fixated on a trail to move forward and backwards. After testing it with some contents, I figured that the interaction experience would be better if the content had both sound and image. The original idea which is to move through time seems to make a bit more sense than the others, but without sound and motion it seems to be a bit dry and boring. The content should also be more focused and concentrated on a particular thing, event or person.
The mechanical part still doesn’t work well due to the heavy weight of the screen and the unstable trail I’m using, and that seems to also effect the readings of the IR sensor. I think I might need to add handles to the side of the screen, make a platform for the monitor to sit on and maybe even add wheels for the monitor to move smoother.
