The Gamelunch is a sonically augmented dining table. By means of the Gamelunch, we aim at investigating the closed loop between interaction, sound and emotion and exploiting the power and flexibility of physically-based sound models as primary tools toward an effective and coherent process of interactive sound design. Continuous interaction gestures are captured by means of various force transducers, providing data that are coherently mapped onto physically-based sound synthesis algorithms. Investigation of the above mentioned loop is carried out by the principle of contradiction: while performing usual dining movements, such as cutting and slicing, dressing the salad, pouring beverages, the user encounters contradicting and unexpected sound feedbacks, thus experiencing – per absurdum – the importance of environmental sounds in everyday-life acts.

Abstract

The Gamelunch is a sonically augmented dining table. By means of the Gamelunch, we aim at investigating the closed loop between interaction, sound and emotion and exploiting the power and flexibility of physically-based sound models as primary tools toward an effective and coherent process of interactive sound design. Continuous interaction gestures are captured by means of various force transducers, providing data that are coherently mapped onto physically-based sound synthesis algorithms. Investigation of the above mentioned loop is carried out by the principle of contradiction: while performing usual dining movements, such as cutting and slicing, dressing the salad, pouring beverages, the user encounters contradicting and unexpected sound feedbacks, thus experiencing – per absurdum – the importance of environmental sounds in everyday-life acts.
