Writing your ABCs

This project explores the differences in hand and arm movement between boys and girls as they write. Using a Wii remote we collected data from 10 girls and 10 boys writing A, B, C on an imaginary blackboard. This data was translated in to visuals using Processing. Each direction of movement was represented by a different circle that accumulated a new pattern throughout the movements.

These visuals were put into flip-books, showing the flow and change in movement. By using a flip-book you can experience the poster via a more tangible interaction. The two flip-books that represent an example of one boy and one girl.
