Office space for the week. – Faithful Cat on hand.

With new technologies coming along every day, the ability for people to interact with the digital world, becomes easier and easier. Released by Microsoft in 2010, the Kinect has become an interesting tool for digital artists to experiment with, and thanks to its open source programming, programmers and artists are finding it easier to Implement the device within their projects.

With our ‘Making Gestures’ project, I decided to experiment with the device myself, using the software VVVV. Something I have briefly used before and wanted to get my hands on again to experiment with a different device. The Kinect, (happily on loan from my sister (Thank you Kel)) requires a large amount of space for its use, making the ‘lab’ for this week, my living room rather than my office.
