OpenFrameworks - Demystefying the Kinect
Sunday, November 11, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM (EST)
Media Lab Melbourne promotes collaboration between artists, designers, scientists, technologists, couturiers, performers, players, crafters and creatives!
The introduction of the Microsoft Kinect camera in 2010 brought what used to be an incredibly exclusive and expensive technology to the masses – that of tracking objects in 3-dimensional space.
Since then we’ve seen a range of new products on the market (from companies such as Prime Sense, Soft Kinetic and Leap Motion) promising to fundamentally alter the way in which we interact with computers. While gaming using the Xbox Kinect hasn’t quite taken
off largely due to poor titles, the creative and hacking communities have been extremely busy finding novel ways to utilise these devices.
This workshop will expose participants to the numerous ways in which Kinects can be controlled, using the openFrameworks C++ toolkit for creative coders. Topics such as point cloud manipulation, 3D film making, skeleton and blob tracking will be covered.
Presenter: Pierre Proske
Please bring a laptop and a Kinect if you have one (although not required – we will be supplying some). Windows, OSX and Linux will be supported.
Capacity: 20 people
