Chain Pen

As I was thinking about the current interaction of switching on the unit with a simple switch, I decided it was too boring & predictable. In a couple of earlier form sketches, I included a chain pen hanging from the base of the viewer. As the project is centred around people who compulsively record everything they see, I thought I could exaggerate this by turning on the unit when the pen is picked up, forcing the user to hold the pen while they observe. I can make this happen by using a microswitch with a long lever connected to the end of the chain.

Just waiting to get the components through the mail...
