‘Finished’ Processing Visualizations

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

Today we had our final presentations for the Multimedia Sensors class. The final sensor setup I used was my 4 sliding potentiometers and 8 push buttons (4 on/off and 4 momentary). The buttons are from old Nintendo game consoles and were really cheap at the electronics thrift store. I statically mapped each sensor to a [...]

More Processing Visualizations, Sensors

Monday, December 8th, 2008

Today I started constructing the physical sensors that will control these visualizations. I so far have some sliding potentiometers to control continuous parameters (speeds, quantities, etc) and push buttons to control boolean flags that enable or disable various modes and extra features for the animations. I will be adding rotary knobs as well as a [...]

Visualizations in

Saturday, December 6th, 2008

The following are some screenshots of visualizations I have been making in processing as part of my MAT594O Sensors class. I am creating animations for the screen that will be controlled using physical real-world sensors. I am structuring it as a set of discrete visualizations that will be faded between. Sensors (and keyboard) will control [...]
