12 Progress Report

Andre has continued to research alternative middleware and hardware. He has OpenTSPS recognizing a rapid backhand gesture (think ping pong) in a way that is rock solid. He has been also looking at hardware packages, including IR cameras, that may provide us with robust alternatives to the Kinect sensors. And, he has been investigating contextual, event-driven, audio that would add… Read more →

Power over Ethernet – Wikipedia

Power over Ethernet or PoE describes any of several standardized or ad-hoc systems which pass electrical power along with data on Ethernet cabling. This allows a single cable to provide both data connection and electrical power to devices such as wireless access points or IP cameras. Unlike standards such as Universal Serial Bus which also power devices over the data… Read more →

Interaction Lab at Rockwell Group » Venice Biennale

We developed custom software using Openframeworks, an open development environment for C++. It uses 6 Mac Pro Computers, Mac Mini for Sound, 2 Mantis MG video servers, Media Matrix Digital Signal processor, 6 firewire AVT Guppy IR cameras, and custom IR filtered lighting. In the projection each point is given an initial x,y and z coordinates and wanders within a… Read more →
