The museum in Assen has a ontdekkings kamer (discovery room)
where children can discover how live was for their ancestors.
There are a lot of things they can do or play with, but also there
are a dozen or so media boots or media caves where they can
listen to audio or view a video.
This installation was very old, so we had to replace the
current system with DVDplayers, and make a new control box.
In every boot there is a set of speakers and a motion detector,
when someone takes place in the booth the box is supposed to
start a DVD player.
The box is based on a Parallax javelin Java Stamp and sends
infra red remote signals to the DVDplayers.
