A quick app I put together this morning as a response to Todd Vanderlin’s AR scratching ( http://vimeo.com/4312616 ). The app uses the accelerometer of the ipod touch to control the speed of a ‘vinyl record’ on the ipod screen. Slowing down the record and speeding it up is just a matter of controlling how fast you spin the device.

Made with openFrameworks.

Next up scratching!
Track is Full Clip by Gang Starr.

Thanks to Zach Gage’s excellent ofxALSoundPlayer class!

    Re: scratching: it could easily be accomplished by either the obvious method of spinning the disc (or record, or whatever) via the touchscreen.
    OR
    The more interesting way, the way you’ve done it. Directionality is pointless; just say the first time you spin it is “forward”, and any sudden changes means a change in direction.
    (Of course, this depends on how fast you can poll the accelerometer.)
