This is our second run of the successful BYOSH workshop!
Working in small teams, you will build your own augmented reality system that instantly turns anyone into a superhero. Develop super powers - shoot lasers, see through walls, fire rockets, turn invisible, all using some coding and the Kinect and OpenNI! We will provide the hardware and tools you need. We will use free and open source tools such as Processing, toxiclibs, Kinect and OpenNI, and introduce techniques in 3D graphics and interactive sound synthesis. Food and drink provided. Assemble your own team, or come and meet some creative people to form a team.
Day 1: Intro, inspiration, brainstorming ideas, using our code for Processing and the Kinect (examples)
Day 2: Audio-visual programming – coding your characters visual appearance and sound effects and/or theme song
Day 3: Finishing projects; Showing off everyone’s superheroes
Code from the last workshop is open source and can be found here on Github.
Bring your art skills and superhero ideas! Some very basic familiarity with programming concepts required. We will cover some basics of programming using Processing, a simplified version of Java for interactive art and design. We will provide Kinect cameras and computers for each team, but you may bring your own laptop.
We sell both single tickets and a special group ticket for a group of 4 people who would like to work together, and can purchase their ticket at the same time.
We are a small organisation and spaces are limited, so if you'd like a refund please ask us up to 48 hours before the event or else we will not be able to refund your full price.
