Demo of Sound Collection Module by Craig, the prototype has been made so a Co-Researcher can hang the unit round their neck, record 6 sounds by pushing the big red button during a tour of an exhibition, hear the recorded sounds by pulling the neck lanyard, choosing each sound by twisting the top segment. The Co-researcher can then experiment triggering sounds using the LittleBits Kit that will add to the development of sensory object museum interpretation. Unit still needs a bit more refinement, but we are hoping one will be ready for our test workhop at MERL Museum of English Rural Life with members of Reading Mencap on Thursday May 5th 2013.
