kinect_ProjectorDance | princeMio This is a lightweightkinect-projector calibration method – which iseasy to usefast to setupfun to play with ;) It’s hacked for processing and works without openCV. I created this tool because i needed an interactive wall for another project. So what this application basically does…IS…it transforms the user’s data (pixel, sceleton) orthogonal to a self defined projectorwall. Most of the artists and especially beginners within the processing community, tried the wonderfull applications presented at This is a zip folder, containing the calibration scetch and a demo scetch. Ok this should be very easy! I Calibrate the wall’s orientation Place your camera pointing at the screen/projection in about 2 – 5 meter distance. Now that you defined the orientation of the wall, you need to define the exact dimensions of the actual screen/projection displaying the content. The calibartion of course can have some calculation offset, rooting from inaccuracy and noise.

Use Kinect with Mac OSX In this article I will show how you can use Microsoft Kinect for xBox 360 on Mac OSX. In this way you can create applications that interact with the body's movements. Introduction This article is intended for people who have a lot of experience in the Information Technology area, both as a developer and as systems engineer, especially on unix systems. In fact, the installation of the drivers may be a little tricky, especially if something does not go the first time. I warn you... there are some commands to run with the terminal, I do not take any responsibility if with these commands (or connecting the kinect) you will damage your Mac. The version of Kinect that i have is sold separately from the xBox. I connected the Kinect to an iMac with OSX 10.7.4 64-bit. Well, now that I have described the tools used for testing, we can install and configure the software and drivers required. Driver and SDK Before proceeding you should know that there are several available API and SDK for Kinect.

La aparición del –un arte inmaterial que se crea y distribuye en internet- evidencia futuras transformaciones en la recepción de prácticas artísticas. Los primeros intentos de vender arte de internet durante lo que hoy conocemos con el nombre de Periodo Heroico nos parecen especialmente interesantes porque no fueron llevados a cabo por galeristas ni agentes del mercado, sino por los propios artistas en un intento por reflexionar sobre la naturaleza de sus obras. 1.
