This work is the product of a collaboration between Information Experience Design and Design Products at the Royal College of Art in London, and created by Francesco Tacchini, Julinka Ebhardt and Will Yates-Johnson.
Space Replay is a floating object that explores and manipulates transitional public spaces by constantly recording and replaying their ambient sounds. The object aims to produce a "delayed echo of human activity” by using a helium filled balloon equipped with battery-powered Arduino and an Adafruit Wave Shield hacked to record and play back audio on the fly.
The components were inserted into a custom designed lightweight polypropylene "sound cone" — in order to enhance the sound coming from the speaker and protect the balloon from the wires and PCB edges. The balloon was filled with enough helium to be able to lift everything and float, reaching its buoyancy point. The final and lightest prototype weights 120g, comprising of electronics, packaging and balloon.
