Evolution!!! This is it folks. The final stage of our evolutionary project. Below are the presentation, poster and report.
A random video on Youtube that looks amazing and would be brilliant if only it were real. The future of FPS games is your backyard…
Just “discovered” a music exploration site that lets you pick a mood combination and play songs appropriately. You can pick genres and refine your preferences on the radio service. That got me thinking, how does one judge musical mood from a piece of music? A brief google search showed up lots of research in that area as well as several societies and contests. So then the natural question was whether people are using this in music generators. Not much success this time. Startup time, people!!! Though I did find a BRILLIANT generator that works on cellular automata.

A nice rant about what the author thinks is horribly wrong with current visions of the future of interaction.
Another cool Kinect Hack that has a lot more than entertainment value.
We did not have a presentation up, though we did do a demo of recording and recognizing Gestures using the Kinect. Since then, we have received the game engine Kokusai Fighter Engine and have integrated it with the (significantly upgraded) Kinect DTW Gesture Recognizer using the Input Simulator API.
Next step, Evolution!
Everyone has heard of some Kinect hack or the other that’s causing Wow reactions everywhere. This is a humorous look at what happens when you cross the line in Kinect Hacks.
