  • Sound Objects is a immersive experiences that takes and walks you down a trip down memory lane a childhood memories/experiences and an sensory imagery, images of sorts  and it is very individualized for each individual who interacts with it for each persons it brings nuance and character with the sound barrel aspect component for this project. it is made out of a 3d printing parts by using rhino and the audio is created and recored from the phone then put through into Ableton to be sampled and weathered and combined tougher and then it was mastered in and program with a circuit wired board chord that was connected through and with Arduino an then it was put within the conch shell and Then it was used to create sounds and the audio was played back through within the conch shell.  The whole entire purpose of this project is too bring back memories to bring them back to there childhood like self again, it is connect with and used for those who want to have early memories of them selfs one selfs each other it actually truly is. At first it happened to be starting out as a music video then a beach creations of sorts and then a audio files sound waves mp3 files waves experimentation files and then went on to be what it is now with the conch shell and the speaker hidden tuck away in there with my audio files. its those who want to be open to a new interactive experience that happens to be open ended interoperation!!!!!!

    zach's brief

    A conch-shaped device that plays ambient seascape sounds in order to stimulate the user's brain into thinking they are on a beach.

    The SmartShell is a conch-shaped device that plays ambient seascape sounds, with the aim of stimulating the user's brain into thinking that they are actually on a beach. This device is for people who desire to be in a beach setting but cannot be there due to limited access, geographic constraints, disability, climate or lack of confidence and self-esteem. The SmartShell is accessible to everyone regardless of their challenges or situation. Studies show there are many physical and mental health benefits of hearing beach and ocean sounds.  Research also shows that ocean sounds can help a person feel relaxed, less stressed, happier and cope with the winter blues.  

    The conch shell design can be held up to an ear to create a spiral sound chamber that amplifies the unique soundtracks. The SmartShell uses a one-inch speaker that is connected via an Arduino microcontroller to an MP3 player which then plays sound through an SD card. The speaker is embedded inside the conch’s spiral. The spiral shape amplifies the audio and makes it sound like an echo.
