    ThumbnailScreen This week we tested our sketch on the Smartslab. Like other groups, we found that the Kinect could not read through the glass. We had to have someone standing in front of it inside and others outside watching from the outside so the actual interaction part of it ended up being a bit of a group [...]

    ThumbnailScreen Last week we were finalising our code for the screen. We had it all pretty much under control except for one little glitch.

    ThumbnailProgress Update…. Our Processing sketch for the screen is built with two layers: foreground and background . The background layer consists of particles constantly running and updating. We are using Perlin noise to control their constant motion. Perlin noise is a random sequence generator producing a more natural ordered, harmonic succession of numbers compared to the standard random() function. It [...]
