Martijn Thé – iPhone & iPad Development & Interaction Design » Interfacing an optical mouse sensor to your ArduinoIn this tutorial I’ll describe how you can connect the optical sensor inside a cheap mouse to your Arduino and have it read out the x- and y-movements. This will enable your Arduino to handle mouse input, detect surface movements, measure surface speed, etc. Materials

The SDK Beta 2 versions of these tutorials have been highlighted here before ( Tutorial: XNA 4.0 + Kinect for Windows SDK and Simple example for implementing skeletal tracking ), so it makes sense to highlight the SDK v1 updated versions too... I have rewritten the entire Kinect Fundamentals tutorial series to cover the new Kinect for Windows SDK 1.0.
It is the objective of our motion capture database HDM05 to supply free motion capture data for research purposes. HDM05 contains more than three hours of systematically recorded and well-documented motion capture data in the C3D as well as in the ASF/AMC data format. Furthermore, HDM05 contains for more than 70 motion classes in 10 to 50 realizations executed by various actors.
