HoloHalo is a holographic communication device that learns and adapts to you. Autonomously project colors and patterns that sync with your mood. I consider the speculative take on technology part of the world of Afro-futurism. I’m exploring a very specific idea, visualizing expressive communication through tech, and what that means (or could mean) for Africans and members of today’s African Diaspora.
It was important to use readily-accessible web tech, meaning HTML, CSS, and SVG. It also needed to be animated, so I learned quite a bit about SMIL and CSS3 animation, finding a way to standardize all the halo movements in my markup. Check out the fully animated Holo Halo site.
