    A quick installation prototype Emily and I hooked up with the libfreenect Kinect drivers and ofxKinect. The system is doing skeleton tracking on the arm and determining where the shoulder, elbow, and wrist is, using it to control the movement and posture of the giant funky bird!

    Speed project - made in a day using openFrameworks and libFreenect.

    ‘Dead Drops’ is an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space. USB flash drives are embedded into walls, buildings and curbs accessable to anybody in public space. Everyone is invited to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your favorite files and data. Each dead drop is installed empty except a readme.txt file explaining the project. ‘Dead Drops’ is open to participation. If you want to install a dead drop in your city/neighborhood follow the ‘how to’ instructions and submit the location and pictures.

  4. This is a port/adaptation of Hector Martin's libfreenect for OS X made by Theodore Watson.

    Hector Martin's Libfreenect project page is here:
    git.marcansoft.com/?p=libfreenect.git

    Most of the code is unchanged but there are some changes to libusb which was needed to get it running ( and a few extra libusb commands ) as well as some tweaking of the transfer sizes.

    It should be self contained and you shouldn't need to install libusb ( the app links it directly ).

    Grab the Source Code:

    UPDATE:
    ( Tested on OS X 10.6.3 - 32bit now and with fixes )

    ofxKinect for OF users - thanks Dan!

    Tips:
    - Try both usb ports.
    - Try not to have too many other devices plugged in ( or any ).

  5. Chris Sugrue from the Eyewriter team, demos the open source Eyewriter 2.0 system connected to the ABB + GML powered Livewriter arm. The process is Tracking -> Callibration -> Typing -> Send to Robot Arm :)

    We used the keyboard mode to allow children to quickly write their name with their eye. The typeface output to the Livewriter was designed by Tempt 1 with the original Eyewriter system. See a test run drawing the full alphabet at: vimeo.com/16045102
