I'm transferring my work to my new website www.Interhacktive.org. Check there for updates.

A little while back SuperTouch created a custom made interactive multi-touchscreen for The Mill that switches from frosted glass to completely transparent revealing a hologram effect of visualizations on the screen. Check out some of the photos of this sweet setup.

The pretty interactive graphics are thanks to Andrew Bell of LibCinder.org & TheMill.com.

Also since I forgot to post some of the work I did while at SuperTouch, here is a little bit of that action.
Here is a Kinect based 3d cover flow showing a few videos being moved around with simple gestures as well as controlling the audio volume based on how far away someone is from the screen. You can also turn on and off a Mooninite and switch the glass window/interface from clear to frosted with gesture. You can also see an iPad controlling the 3d interface as well.

This is a simple interactive cube. Each side corresponds to a different demo and all you have to do is rotate it to switch demos in real-time...it's also sitting on one of SuperTouch's large multi-touchscreen tables...which is why it's all lit up from below.

Another multitouch table for GE this time in all white.

Here is a motion sensing touchscreen that detected when people walked by and would invite them to interact with the screen.

Alpay / SuperTouch's famous Interactive Mirror which is not only a touchscreen but also does face and body tracking. These things are a beast to build and install...but man are they REALLY cool when you see them in person.

Here is a photo of some virtual dressing room software I wrote with Justin for the Interactive Mirror.

There are a number of other projects, builds and installs like the touchscreen/scanner which controlled a robotic projector and some yet to be released stuff on the horizon. I'll get to posting as they go public.

I gotta give up some respect for what Miral, Alan and the iLuminate team have done since the rough prototype I gave them over a year ago. Their EL Wire and LED suits have now been seen on the Black Eyed Peas, Chris Brown during the BET Awards, Christina Aguilera, America's Got Talent, Death Cab for Cutie and more.

Thanks Popular Science! Can't wait to see it in print! If you are interested in building your own tank, feel free to check out my previous post with all the source code needed.

Super simple little app I made to play a prank on a co-worker, took all of about 10 minutes to make...if that, it's only 18 lines of code, works only on a mac. Enjoy.

If you don't know what a mooninite is... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007_Boston_bomb_scare

Press Esc to exit.

Source Code in Processing:

import com.sun.awt.AWTUtilities;
PImage mooninite;
void setup(){
  size(screen.width, screen.height);
  frame.removeNotify();
  frame.setUndecorated(true);
  AWTUtilities.setWindowOpaque(frame, false);
  mooninite = loadImage("mooninite.png");
  imageMode(CENTER);
}
void update(){
}
void draw(){
  loadPixels();
  for ( int i = 0 ; i < pixels.length ; i++ ) pixels[i] = 0;
  updatePixels();
  image(mooninite, mouseX, mouseY, 50,50);
}

Thanks Engadget!



 
 
So I've been working on this little dodgeball demo to show off a little connectivity between the iphone / ipad / android and the kinect.

Just a couple days before we release our kinect based demos, this comes out.

Well, here is what we were working on. SHOCKINGLY SIMILAR.
So are they spying on me...I don't know. Maybe Microsoft is getting back at me for all my smart ass comments I made as a teenager at their software releases in Seattle. In reality Microsoft is probably just taking the same logical steps as me.

Here is a little sampler. Feel free to contact me about the source, I'm really sorry everything is so sloppy, I'm working to fix things.
Edit: updated...but not the source. changing things rapidly.

Just a little experiment using an iPad to control planes of interest in Processing from the depth image from a Kinect. More to come later.

For those who want to check out some photos...there are literally only 2 slides with text. Email me if you have any questions.

Here are the slides.
