Three small experiments in interactivity. This collection is one of many sound-oriented interactive toys on the friendchip.com site. The Datachip series consists of three schemes. In one, the user moves four objects up and down in order to affect the piercing tones the objects emit. In another, a grid of 12 blank squares can be individually triggered to emit a series of sounds by running over them with a mouse; depending on the speed and pattern of your mouse’s trajectory, you can produce a different rhythmic and melodic sequence. In the third, you seem to have the ability to introduce moving objects into a square, each of which triggers a tone when it bounces against a wall. Each is a self-contained assignment of sorts.
