FlashCamp!

So, my boy Mike Nathanson and I wore our brains on our sleeves at Flashcamp this weekend.

We dreamed up a sweet idea of listening to stock prices, which we dubbed MoneyTalks.

It uses the new SampleDataEvent in Flash Player 10 to create sounds dynamically, which we map onto the value of a stock.

Not to pat ourselves on the back, but our app made Photoshop look like Minesweeper.

My ears! Oh my precious ears!

Not a bad idea; but I’m not too down with the horrifying sound. It sounded better the lower the stock was.

I realize you’re trying to create the sound dynamically which is going to be fairly limiting, but I’d like to see something that explores the actual data the graph offers; a way for the sounds to be more pleasant the higher up the stock prices go, or worse the lower they go. Almost like having 2 tracks of the same song - a track played by the San Francisco Philharmonic, and a track played by me and my jug band. The lower the stock price, the higher the volume my track gets set, and vice versa. So if the stock is high, it sounds lovely. Low, it sounds horrendous.

huh? HUH?!?
