LittleVision/Tiny Stories

LittleVision is the Hotpants display device modified so that it can play 25-seconds of video. We record the video using a webcam and special software developed by Justin Manor. Then the video is compressed and burned directly onto the PIC microcontroller onboard the Hotpants display, making it a self-contained video brick.

Tiny Stories is the name we gave to a workshop run by Megan Galbraith, Simon Greenwold, Justin Manor, and James Seo, in which in 1 1/2 hours we had eleven people with no previous exposure to this technology film their own tiny movies and burn them onto bricks they took home. It was a big hit. The images linked from this page are from that workshop.

We have now done a second workshop with LittleVision at the MIT Museum. This time participants built their own boards first and then made movies. Details here.
