"You will meet a tall, dark stranger..."
In this project we want you to design a horoscope vending machine, an object which accepts payment for and then delivers in some way your own personal horoscope.
For the project we would like you to consider a number of issues, from the details of how you interact with the device (how do you pay for it? how do you select your birthsign etc) to how we create the whole experience. Horoscopes work on a complex set of belief systems that are dependent on our own psychology, philosophy and culture amongst many variables. They forever betray our aspirations and fears. Though few people will analyse them religiously, for many it remains a kind of daily entertainment.
For the final crit we want to see a full size prototype that works in a "Wizard of Oz" style.
