Working on becoming a VJ/DJ using the kinect


Working on scratching and drumming in mid air with the kinect as my turntable on my Mac with ableton live. More to follow

Beatbox this on your LeapMotion

The other day I got my leapmotion, think of it as a kincect that can fit in your pocket for mac/pc, since "gesture is the new touch".

There are some 80 apps already in the very well designed appstore and with the JavaScript API, once can use it on websites as well.

Now all i need is an attitude and a rhyme to do:

Makey Makey makes a key present.

Via an old friend, the tip to browse to, it turns any object into a key. And as you know, everything that combines the real world with the virtual world, can get my attention.

See this video:

And yes, it is an old kickstarter project.

For a real good overview of what the project can do, be sure to checkout as well, only 40 dollars.

The kit that ships from Colorado-based SparkFun Electronics contains a MaKey MaKey circuit board, alligator clips and a mini-USB cable. Any object that is capable of conducting a minute amount of electricity can be used with the kit to send signals to the computer. One of the popular examples shows six bananas being connected up and used to play an online piano app.

The standard kit allows for up to six objects to be connected to the MaKey MaKey board. By default, inputs are limited to the four cursor keys along with space and the left mouse click. The board allows for extra objects to be connected to the back of the board (requiring additional connectors) and for those Arduino hackers out there, the entire unit can be configured to control whichever keyboard inputs are needed. It is also possible to run multiple MaKey MaKey boards on a single computer – all you need are spare USB ports.
