Andrew Ferguson is a final year student of Interactive Media Design at the Edinburgh Napier University. He is passionate about creative computing and is exploring how technology can be used to bring people together through playful interaction.

Over the past few years Andrew has picked up a variety of skills, including how to create fun and wacky interactive installations, and for his final project he decided to create something special. WILSON, his creation, is an interactive display that takes things very personally!

Created using 3D projection mapping, Wilson will invite you to define his personality based on how you treat him, but more importantly how you treat the people around you.

Andrew said: “I am interested in Cyber-Psychology & User Experience theories and have tailored my honours project to explore how an interactive installation can encourage social cohesion and just basically get people working together, mainly by just having fun!”

“Wilson will react to certain things he senses such as the noise levels around him. The visuals will help show the emotion he is feeling as different inputs affect his mood.”

 

Meet Andrew and interact with WILSON at the Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire on Sunday 16 April. Get your tickets now.
