I'm looking for a show of hands for people that would be interested in
coming to a free workshop at FACT where we show you how you can hack the
FACT front window to make interactive games or other works. As you may know
it is a 50x50 pixel low resolution screen and it looks really amazing when
lit up. As the long nights are drawing in we'd like to open up the facade
for local hackers to play with.
We have written a library in openFrameworks which allows you to easily push
content to the screen, and also allows you to gather inputs from a variety
of devices such as a IR camera, XBox controllers, audio, SMS, or probably
any sensors that your imagination allows. You can create games or just cool
interactions... or do whatever you like.
The workshop would be aimed at people with some experience of
openFrameworks or similar languages (Arduino, Processing, C++, etc). But
please don't be put off if you're not a proficient coder - we'll try to
make it accessible for most people.
Workshop would be either Sunday 28 October (10.00am to 6pm) or in the
evenings of Tuesday and Wednesday (30th and 31st Octover). Please state
your preference (daytime or evening).
Limited to 10 people, so please let me know if you're interested by
replying on or off-list. Any questions, let me know!
