And Melon is a piece of software to help designers and creators set up the kinect as a controller for any interactive project requiring this type of 3D camera interface. The software is build to be user friendly and can send squeleton data via the OSC protocol.
François presented his project at the lastest Libre Graphics Meeting. In this video, you’ll also learn the possibilites of the software, the coming improvements and why in hell it is called Melon.
For those who follow this blog, we played with Melon and BLender in one of our Blender bpy/bge workshops. Melon has also been used in this latest installation, Tyranoeil, that you can see until the 9th of June in front of the Central Station, Brussels.
This is the cover that wants to sound like it’s the original. I don’t know where 50 cent got his sample from, but this wordless cover of P.I.M.P. woud be perfect with a mojito on this sunny *cough* afternoon.
En 1995, France Télécom a la ferme intention d’interdire internet en France. Sisi!
Mais Valentin Lacambre, qui est plus malin que France Télécom à lui tout seul, s’en rend propriétaire… d’internet… la marque. Sisi!
C’est la connerie du dimanche (enfin, ça dépend d’où on se place) pour vous signaler ce documentaire “Une contre histoire des internets” qui passera ce 14 mai à 22h40 sur Arte. Un documentaire à voir absolument si vus voulez comprendre un peu sur quoi vous êtes et pourquoi c’est important de comprendre. (Pour ne pas attendre jusque mardi, c’est là aussi.)
Here’s the video from the last day presentations of the Interactivos?’13 workshop at Medialab Prado, Madrid. 10 projects have been developped during these 2 weeks. I’m planning on blogging more extensively about some of them. But for now, if you want to have a quick idea of what came out of this intensive workshop, sit back and watch this 2 hour video. It’s mainly in english, with some spanish speakers here and there. I must warn you that everyone worked hard to the last minute, so we were all in a high degree of fatigue and bugs and quirks showed up sometimes. (For those who want to skip, I present “Design with Git” at 58:00)
