thoughts for future ‘aura’ applications
The possibilites offered by Flash and interactivity are significant and exciting.
A first thought for future development is to be using Actionscript to track the motion of the mouse pointer and creating a series of actions based on that. For instance, there could be geometric shapes that are attracted to the mouse pointer as it moves over the application, like a magnet going over needles (‘magnetic aura’).
Sound could also be used.
The user could be using the application to make a composition (visual or audio), with each element of these being the ‘aura’ of a specific movement or action of the mouse pointer.
There could be a main application placed on a white surface (page) and as the ‘game’ progresses, smaller ones could start emerging from the blank areas. The whole thing could be changing constantly and have a sense of flow (see relevant post)
