    ‘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.

  3. 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 ).

  4. 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
