The current title of our project. It is the summary of me and my partners collective semester 1’s worth of work.
It took many forms before arriving to the current state, from initial ideas of a kinetic scrolling website, to an android application to the current state of Processing, a visual form of Java.
It is designed, at this point, to target year ones in my current degree of Bachelor of Creative Technology in Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand. Specifically for visualisation of conversation, in topics, and how a topic grows over time. After the session, they can visually see how their topics took shape, with one topic could be the biggest one, one could be weak and requires working on.
This application can also make the people visually aware of how the conversation is going. With the ability to add new topics on the fly, seeing the natural flow of the conversation makes it a powerful tool to see what begins as a simple topic or question can lead to a large amount of topic to expand to.
It also has a threshold value for the sound, so this visual aid subconsciously makes speakers aware of their own speaking voice, if the growth isn’t being affected by their voice, it indicates that they can be too quiet. This allows for them to adjust their speaking voice to better help the people around them hear better.
