Svetlobnarava or Lightnature is a project by two PIFhackhathon participants Tamara Mihalič and Jure Vidmar. They want to create a place in the natural environment, where the presence of participants unleashes the magical secrets of the Soča forests. Unfortunately, they have not yet discovered their own supernatural abilities, so magic in the forest will be a result of various technological interventions, such as the integration of lights and sensors into the natural environment. They will set up a network of luminaries (like light plants, robo-fireflies etc.) in the forest clearing, which will be revived only when in interaction with the participants.
One of the interactive points will be a Wi-Fi tree, a totem that releases its magic only when the sufficient number of people is connected to it. The second is an ashtray in which glowing cigarette buds send light pulses into the meadow. The third is a swing or a hammock, which creates a wave and awakens life in a sleepy forest. Jure and Tamara have many ideas, but they especially want to create and connect with other PIFcamp participants. Let’s hack together! :)
