|Nami is a
network of orbs that glow with colored light. The orbs send messages through
the network to cause their neighbors to change color, resulting in beautiful
patterns of light. The battery-powered orbs can be rearranged to make new
pathways for communication, and therefore new patterns of color.
Each orb is touch-sensitive and programmable to respond to messages in different ways. The orbs can behave as a community or as individuals, supporting a variety of colorful applications.
Nami was presented at SIGGRAPH'99
and the 1999 Tokyo Toy Fair
