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.
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.
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
Limited to 10 people, so please let me know if you're interested by replying on or off-list. Any questions, let me know!
