    Beskrivelse

    The talk will be about an unsucessful example of action figure toy line Galidor, and about a world-hit Mindstorms NXT. In Galidor action figures sonification had a crucial part in playing - the figures were activated by specific signals from a TV-show, and performed different actions afterwards. Mindstorms NXT robots get sound input via a microphone, and could produce sound feedbeck using a modest speaker.
