    Ha! Thanks for pointing it out. Completely missed it in my ’Woo Hoo!’ moment. Updated and resubmitted in BB if it makes any difference.

    ThumbnailGetting Arduino to work in Processing is simple enough with a step-by-step guide here. Arduino + PIR sensor To begin working with our Sparkfun PIR sensor, we used a great sensor report by an ITP student . Based on some forum threads, analog values could be used to measure distance so we tried extensively to find patterns in the values, [...]

      Cracking the gestures Probably one of the trickiest coding hurdles for us was to figure out how to tell between the different gestures. We first operated on a grid model that tracked the time in which the user takes to pass through the different areas. If more time is spent in one area, then it would [...]

Crisp shapes, solid colour backgrounds, soft glows when needed. It reminds us of deep sea creatures and looks slightly [...]

    Hi Martin,
    Can Amber and Inez have the smartslab 7.30-8.30pm tonight (6 Jun)? Did you mention you have a super long power extension cord? If you could leave that in the smartslab area it’d help a lot. Many thanks!

    I made a boo boo and booked the wrong date. We’d like 6.30 – 7pm on Thursday (2/6) for a dry run and Friday (3/6) 4 – 4.30pm for our user test. All are welcome on Friday!

    ThumbnailSo we just had our 1st major screen test on Friday and it was very enlightening. We had in mind a whole design aesthetic with an ambient swarm of fish, subtle water ripples, watercolour-inspired background and have been working towards it only to discover… it doesn’t work. First of all, the watercolour look is bad because [...]

    Just to add onto Amber’s post, one of our bigger technical breakthroughs in the past weeks was to crack the algorithms to determine simple swarming and hand gestures. We dropped the idea of using a grid to track hand positions, as in our presentation, opting for distances between blob centres instead. The new one basically [...]

    Amber & Inez would like Friday, 27 May 2011 __ 12-1pm. The more participants the merrier! But if other people want time as well, let us know and we’re happy to give up half an hour.

    I found something to think about and thought I’d share this except from ’The Shallows: What the internet is doing to our brains’ by Nicholas Carr;
    ”A team of University of Michigan researchers, led by psychologist Marc Berman, recruited some three dozen people and subjected tem to a rigorous, and mentally fatiguing, series of tests designed to measure the capacity of their working memory and their ability to exert top-down control over their attention. The subjects were then divided into two groups. Half of them spent about an hour walking through a secluded woodland park, and the other half spent an equal amount of time walking along busy downtown streets. Both groups took the test a second time. Spending time in the park, the researchers found, ”significantly improved” people’s performance on the cognitive tests, indicating a substantial increase in attentiveness. Walking in the city, by contrast, led to no improvement in test results”.

    Interestingly, the researchers found the same results when people looked at photographs of either calm rural scenes or busy urban ones. They concluded that ”simple and brief interactions with nature can produce marked increase in cognitive control”. Keeping close to nature while adding a little whimsy might be a good design consideration…

      A little off topic, but I once created a little game in Processing called The Shallows that tried to illustrate why students end up resorting to a ”shallow” form of learning. I’ll see if I can post it up somewhere so that you can play it…

For the purposes of making a prototype that people can engage with on demonstration night, we have decided to focus on developing the immediate user experience, using therapy as the main hook.

    I’m really interested in pose tracking and how to recognise gestures.

    The best advice is often the one you forget the most. Thanks for the comments Martin and Deb!

  • Inez Ang started the forum topic A Kinect workshop? in the group AvatarIDEA9102:   6 years, 7 months ago · View

    I think it’d be handy to learn more about tracking with the Kinect and wonder if we could have a workshop on its finer points like pose tracking and gesture recognition? To do this during one of the lab sessions would be nice.

      That’s a great idea, Inez. I do have a feeling most of us will be using the Kinect on our implementations, so that would really come handy.

    I think I finally realised this the night before the presentation. I do agree that it’s convoluted in many ways and to stick with this idea would mean more problem-solving than creating. The fish one is a much cleaner slate to build upon and I’m glad I put this baby on the back burner.
