Motion Sketch

Kinect + openFrameworks + you

On Saturday November 17, 2012 I debuted my first openFrameworks project using Kinect at Create:Fixate’s Magnetic. Actually It was my first openFrameworks project and my second time using the Kinect. My original plan was to create a motion version of Deco Sketch. That proved to be a bit ambitious so I chose to go simpler.

The response from attendees was incredible. At times there were 8-10 people waving their hands at the projection fighting for control. When users connected with the visuals on screen and realized their ability to manipulate it, most produced a childlike smile as they got lost in the piece.
