The eye of the Internet makes one aware that Internet not only knows everything, but is also sees everything, courtesy of the many Webcams at the space.

The eye communicates with you by changing its color. When nobody is watching, it is green. When somebody (or somethings) requests the webcams public URL, the eye turns to yellow and starts (pulsating / rotating). The more requests , the more red the color is and faster the lights move.

Steel structure

Electronics hardware


The idea is that whenever the webcam server receives a hit, it will ping / send a message to the arduino, which will change the eye color to pulsating/rotating red light.

Cool ideas

  • als je het helemaal fancy wil laat je eventueel wat geluiden via het space sound systeem lopen. Note that SSS start versterkers on demand op, en dat duurt even.
  • SSS opstarten bij inbraak zou wel een mooie functie zijn: EXTERMINATE! samples door de space laten schallen
  • een (gemotoriseerd) ooglid voor privacy control.
  • een kwadrant/slice van t oog kan verlichten, gebaseerd op richting van de obstakel/ persoon die dichtbij staat.
  • de volgende versie heeft oogleden/wimpers van gasvlammen. / Teslaspoelen die vlambogen produceren!
