Culmination Proposal

Culmination Proposal

My project has new technology but the overall idea was the same. In my original proposal I said that i wanted to use a 12 button remote which would be 11 shapes and 1  webcam video that would move, rotate and react to sound  but instead of 11 shapes I chose four shapes and a webcam and also instead of a remote I am using a product called leap motion to choose from one shape to the next. Below is my presentation that explains more about the project.

Problem while researching

On October 24, 2017 I met with my technical advisor and we were searching how to use leap motion for Max MSP for windows but we keep running into the same error message so I would have to use the Mac computers in the school. I spent about 3 hours researching by using different websites and files that did not seem to help.

Rough Schedule

On September  26, 2017 I met with my technical advisor and created a schedule for this project. Below is what I want to accomplish throughout the process.

  • September – Separate shapes from webcam
  • October – Shapes rotate and react to sound
  • November- Work on Leap motion
  • December – Final changes

So far on the schedule I have all four shapes separated from webcam, the shapes and the webcam also rotate, move and react to sound. Now I am working on how to get all the action tied to the leap motion so that I can perform certain gestures

On 10/23/17 I resigned my poster. On this version of the poster I designed it horizontal as suggested and I added some screenshots of the code and a background
