The workshop will be divided into two days. You can attend one or both meetings. The level of experience required is beginner: a minimum of familiarity with TouchDesigner is required, but the specific concepts will be resumed from the basics.
The focus of the first meeting will be on the use of the Kinect sensor. This infrared depth camera is one of the most used and supported sensors in the interactive installation sector. We will deepen its use in relation to tracking movements, detecting depth, and creating point clouds. The second meeting will focus on the integration of Arduino with TouchDesigner. We will establish two-way communication channels between our computer and the Arduino board, and we will give life to various projects; among these: the integration of various sensors, the control and animation of lights, the use of servomotors, and finally the construction of a lie detector.
