A picture kaleidoscope with processing

A while ago, I stumbled over an article about kaleidoscope creation, probably because of one of my adobe Flash collaborators. It was lying around for a while, then during a train ride i hacked something like that together in Processing. It is impressing how different a picture looks when mirrored this way.
I spent quite some more time to fine tune the sketch. I created an applet to play around on the web, but i recommend downloading the real application. The download version runs smoother and in full screen, plus you can load your own images and save snapshots.

Kinect and Processing

At a recent Liip Hackday, i worked with the Microsoft Kinect Depth Sensor. I took Processing Simple-OpenNI and added the "push" and "swipe" detectors. To install the processing openni library, you first need the Kinect drivers, OpenNI and NITE. We were successful with the guide of SensorKinect. Then you get the trunk version from google code.

Feedback Blocks: Interactive Video Installation made with processing

Today I want to present the interactive installation that was the original reason for me to start learning processing. "Feedback Blocks" is an interactive installation, where the audience is part of the installation. I share some short films and explain a bit how the installation works.

Der neue Trend: e-recycling (powered by processing.org)

e-Mail, e-Commerce, e-Voting und manchmal auch e-Government oder e-Health usw. Letzthin kam ich an einem Plakat für e-Recycling vorbei. Irgendwie blieb das hängen. Bei all dem e-Irgendwas geht es ja darum, etwas elektronisch (= über das Internet) zu erledigen was bisher physisch passiert ist. Ich habe mich also gefragt: Kann ich in Zukunft meine PET-Flaschen übers Internet recyclen? Leider natürlich nicht. Es geht um das Recycling von Elektro-Geräten. Natürlich eine gute Sache, trotzdem muss es doch auch etwas geben, das sich übers Internet recyclen lässt. Natürlich: Täglich werden Millionen von digitalen Bildern einfach so weggeworfen, anstatt sie anständig zu recyclen. Ein kleines Programm schafft abhilfe.
