1. Interactive Puppet Prototype with Xbox Kinect


    from Theo Watson Added 721K 1,455 76

    Update: check the 2.0 version! http://vimeo.com/34824490 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. Concept and Production by Design I/O Emily Gobeille - Theo Watson http://design-io.com 3D depth camera for arm tracking, courtesy of Microsoft and the open source / diy community :) If you're interested in making projects with the Kinect and openFrameworks check out the addon as it progresses on the OF forums. http://openframeworks.cc/​forum/​viewtopic.php?p=24948#p24948 Also keep an eye on the libfreenect GitHub for latest updates to the driver - https://github.com/OpenKinect/libfreenect/

      • Kinect Titty Tracker


        from Dan Wilcox Added 172K 210 47

        A simple Open Frameworks application using the MS Kinect depth sensing camera via libfreenect and ofxKinect. The computer searches for my manboobs and draws a bra or pasties on top. Music is played when titties are detected. I'm using OpenCV on the depth image. I look for a person-sized blob and use it's centroid to approximate a search box wherein to detect 2 boobs. The bra or pasties are drawn using the centroids of these boob blobs. A third blob detector is used to look for the hand to change between bras. The second half of the video shows a projection mapping of the bras/pasties onto my chest. This is all running in realtime and in low light conditions with a bad background. Yes, the Kinect sensor is pretty awesome!

        • levelHead v1.0, 3 cube speed-run (spoiler!)


          from Julian Oliver Added 320K 1,011 41

          As yet unseen footage of the first stable version of levelHead, an augmented-reality spatial-memory game by Julian Oliver. Warning! This is a spoiler for the first 3 cubes: the easy Red Cube, the tricky Green Cube and the ridiculously difficult Orange Cube. NB: This footage was captured using desktop screencapture software. This reduced the performance of the game a bit. You can read more about levelHead and how it works here: http://julianoliver.com/levelhead

          • DepthJS


            from Fluid Interfaces Added 489K 482 41

            Kinect + Computer Vision + Javascript DepthJS is a web browser extension that allows any web page to interact with the Microsoft Kinect via Javascript. Find out more at http://depthjs.media.mit.edu Navigating the web is only one application of the framework we built - that is, we envision all sorts of applications that run in the browser, from games to specific utilities for specific sites. The great part is that now web developers who specialize in Javascript can work with the Kinect without having to learn any special languages or code. We believe this will allow a new set of interactions beyond what we first developed. DepthJS is open source under the AGPL license. http://github.com/doug/depthjs Created by (in alphabetical order) Aaron Zinman - http://web.media.mit.edu/~azinman Doug Fritz - http://www.dougfritz.com Greg Elliott - http://gregtelliott.com Roy Shilkrot - http://www.morethantechnical.com/ We are students in: Fluid Interfaces Group - http://fluid.media.mit.edu Information Ecology Group - http://eco.media.mit.edu

            • Blind Self Portrait


              from Kyle McDonald Added 147K 1,382 39

              While the visitor keeps their eyes shut, a moving platform guides a pen in their hand to draw a self-portrait, using computer vision to track their face and generate a line drawing. The result is a machine-aided drawing, a self-portrait you could never draw. Here we're testing an early version that moves about a half or third the speed of the more recent versions. "Blind Self Portrait" is a collaboration between Matt Mets and Kyle McDonald, installed for the first time at the NYC Resistor interactive show https://interactiveshow2012.eventbrite.com/?ref=ecount Installed: https://vimeo.com/44489751 Photos: http://flickr.com/photos/kylemcdonald/sets/72157629813858248/ Source: https://github.com/kylemcdonald/BlindSelfPortrait

                  from Alex Tyson Added 67.4K 386 33

                  ||| Headphones or Stereo Speakers recommended ||| Submersed Songs is a sound installation that generates mp3 player remixes through the movements of four live fish. The animals' movements and the proximity among them work as a parameter for mixing and spatializing the audience's music tracks in real time. This system constantly mashes-up two different songs recorded by different users. The two tracks are submitted to different modification processes, building a real time continuity between the swimming of the carp fish and the levels of distortion- which can vary from an intense reverberation to a simulation of hearing underwater. {filmed in Sao Paulo, Brazil} * This installation is quadraphonic. The video has been mixed to stereo L+R from the original output. concept and production: Vivian Caccuri http://viviancaccuri.net/ video production: Alex Tyson programming: André Perrotta Thanks: Itaú Cultural SESI Vila Leopoldina FILE Labo

                      For the March 2010 issue of Boards Magazine, Emily Gobeille and I worked with Nexus Productions to develop an interactive cover experience called Rise and Fall. Here is a little preview of the experience. You can download the software and the cover from: http://boardsmag.com/RiseAndFall Update: Found out you can buy a copy of the magzine for $7 by emailing - BoardsCustomerCare@boardsmag.com . You can also download the cover as a pdf from the link above. The project uses the Ferns library for tracking ( http://cvlab.epfl.ch/software/ferns/index.php ) and the whole project is open source released under the GPL v2.0 .
