Stretchy Lines With Quartz Composer and TUIO

Stretchy Lines With QuartzComposer and TUIO

I really dig the end result of this hack. Using Quartz Composer and TUIO, this project dubbed "Stretchy Lines" has came to life thanks to that handy depth sensing wonder toy Kinect. The setup includes a Kinect perpendicular to the table. The TUIO Server detects objects within a specific range, and then a calibrated projector draws random lines around the objects detected.

TUIO sends objects coords using OSC protocol to Quartz Composer, and then the graphic is rendered using custom Quartz Composer patches.

Kinetic Space 2.0 - Custom Gesture Recognition System

Kinetic Space 2.0 - Custom Gesture Recognition System

Got a tip today from Matthias W├Âlfel who was kind enough to share his great gesture based recording and recognition tool used with the Kinect. The system is free to check out by downloading it from http://kineticspace.googlecode.com.

The software allows users to train the software to recognize specific gestures that can be implemented into other applications such as Max/MSP, Pure Data, VVVV, Resolume via OSC protocol.

Kinect Wings with Processing, OSC and Arduino

Kinect Wings with Processing, OSC and Arduino

Oh snap! How exciting! Someone submitted a video to my Vimeo Kinect Hacks group! The prize of course is to be mentioned on this here ol' website of mine. Definitely makes finding great hacks easier on me so be sure to add your videos to the group! Not that all videos will make their way here, just ones that rock of course. With that being said, this one has a nice rock element to it. If I were to choose said rock element, I'd go with GOLD BABY!

PuShy - Tactile Sonic Interface

PuShy - Tactile Sonic Interface

The PuShy project is a very creative and inspiring project involving Max/MSP, OSC along with a trusty Kinect sensor. The idea behind this Tactile Sonic Interface is to provide a means of touching something that has no business making any sort of sonic response and then coming to life with a symphony of music once the interaction has taken place. This project was first unraveled at the Plektrum Festival 2011, Tallinn, Estonia.
