Keycars codename is an internal project that is under development at Miaumiau studio.
The basic idea is to control one Scalextric through internet via Arduino hardware and OpenFrameworks TCP communications.
At this point we are able to control the Scalextric from two scroll bars programmed in OF, but the future is exciting because we want to connect a Flash interface hosted in a website and send real time video streaming from our studio to the web, enabling the capabilities for the user to control the scalextric remotely.
We have been dealing with many ways to make the user control the cars, using the keyboard would be the first choice, but also using the microphone and making the user scream would be more fun (the more you scream the faster the car would go). If you have any sugestions we would love to read them!.
