We will continue working on this project over the next few months and update our progress on this blog.
So far we have achieved datamoshing and other real-time visual effects via three methods: (1) circuit bending on the 5-pin antenna input strip; (2) vibrations on the TV tuner crystal; and (3) terminal commands.
Next steps include:
- construction of an interactive receptacle for the circuit-bent TV tuner
- consideration of what sort of vibrating device we will use (probably not a toothbrush)
- continued experimentation with terminal commands/software hacks to determine which of the over 4000 functions present in the Micro C/OS may cause datamoshing or other visual effects on the broadcast signal
- creation of an open source document for further experimentation by artists and others
