An accelerometer measuring the velocity of movement on the X and Y planes is connected to the end of a lollipop, and track the user's tongue movement speed. The faster the user moves her/his tongue, the faster the playback of audio & video. Slow tongue movements or stopping completely will result in a parallel effect on the playback of the video.
Lip Synch blurs the lines between voyeurism and participation by allowing the viewer to control the action in the video. This new media kissing booth also allows the user to experience some of the visceral actions of kissing as an individual; challenging the idea that it takes two people to kiss.
Materials used to create Lip Synch include an Arduino microcontroller, Processing 2.0a4, a Canon 5D + Zeiss lenses, Final Cut 7, and lollipops.
