Eye Drop is a set of bottles containing a digital liquid made of shiny particles, that you can shake and play with, the fluidity make it feel real. Eye Drop uses a Huawei smartwatch and a lens from Google Cardboard to give an impression of immersive screen. We took existing codes from Daniel Erickson and Daniel Schiffman that we modified.
A video demonstration can be viewed here.
For each code we tested, there's one version in Java to execute on Processing PDE with the Java Mode. And one version to use with the Android Mode that will build an android application inside the smartwatch via USB or bluetooth. For installing the Android Mode for Processing check here. It's important to have installed the Android SDK. We also use the Ketai Library for Processing which helped us to develop and build all application for android.
