It's not a Kinect, damnit. But what is it? What are these strange pictures davidc keeps posting, where is it leading, and will he even receive the parts in time?

I'll be presenting my "magic wall" art project next Thursday evening at the next SCOPE session. I'm not even going to try and describe it in text - it seems to defy definition - so come along to Atelier Überall to check it out, or tune in to watch it live.

David Croft ( will be introducing a project to create a wall art installation that dynamically and fluidly interacts with the viewers by monitoring the position of their bodies to give a natural-feeling experience. He’ll describe the theory behind the hardware, give an overview of the software, and introduce the open source toolkit he’s releasing to allow visual artists to develop their own projects using Processing.

David is an Berlin-based independent game developer, computer programmer, network engineer, and electronics tinkerer and describes himself as an “all-round geek without a purpose”.
