Back in 2008, for his Royal College of Art graduation show, Yuri Suzuki presented work which involved an innovative way of playing conventional vinyl records, including a miniature electric circuit constructed from pieces of old records on which small cars circulate and transmit sound. This miniature vehicle incorporates miniature sensor that detects and follows a black line whilst it reads crossing coloured lines and translates them as RGB data into sound. Users could draw a randomly shaped circuit using a black marker pen on a piece of paper and the colour chaser followed the line.
In 2010, the project took shape and presented as "Colour Chaser", beautifully designed but minimal vehicles in the shape of a box with an on/off button and the speaker located at the top. What was intriguing about this little machine is that its simplicity could generate richness off sometimes hectic drawings on the paper.
