openFrameworks MIDI Air Guitar

openFrameowkrs MIDI Air Guitar

Rock out with your Kinect out with this kick ass air guitar project using openFrameworks and the ofxKinect OpenNI libraries. By positioning your hands in a certain way, you can scale the chord progression by moving one hand either closer or further away from the other. To sum things up, we're talking high tech, bleeding edge air guitar awesomeness.

Check out the video to see what I'm talking about. You can actually produce some pretty bad ass sounding chords using this MIDI integrated openFrameworks project.

Kinect Russian Roulette Simulator

You have to check out this hilarious hack by Mr. Theo Watson himself. Recorded at Art Hack Day, Theo treats us to a live demonstration of his Russian Roulette Simulator that was built in about 3 hours for the event. He's using openFrameworks 007 along with the ofxKinect library -- everything is pretty much self explanatory once you watch the video.

Enjoy this morbid/clever Dear Hunter moment brought to you by Theo Watson, ofx and developkinect. Have a great weekend!

Switch Music Conductor v 0.1.2

Switch Music Conductor v 0.1.2

Here's an interesting project worth keeping an eye on. It was built with openFrameworks using the ofxKinect addon. The user appears to be able to hover his or her hand over a particular vector on the screen in order to start playing a pre-set sample of music. The user can then move to another area and have that other sample play in tandem with the original, stop either one by moving away, or initiate a new sample.
