Flux is a project which translates digital data from the bank account into a physical output without the use of numbers. Fluxis an attempt to change the user's understanding of their personal finances— it gives them the opportunity to influence their own money matters in a positive, easy way.
Flux is small and restrained, so it will fit into any situation. Just place this stationary sculpture on the wall and interact with it whenever you like.
Flux is able to receive and broadcast data, giving you a simple understanding of your own finances. Flux visualizes and encodes you cashflows with two pendulums. The leftpendulumrepresents your saving account while the right one shows the remaining budgetin you checking account.
Just activate the device with a short knock on the upper front of the housing, and watch as both pendulums automatically adjust to your latest account balance.
