Kinect Russian Roulette is a speed project by Theo Watson, which allows you to play Russian Roulette with just your hand and a Kinect.
This project is tongue and cheek and is not endorsed by anyone or any brand. Just a ridiculous idea which needed to be made :)
Code ( very messy ) will be posted to github.
For the 2010 Cinekid festival we took the GML loving RoboTagger one step further by directly connecting it to the new and improved Eyewriter 2.0 system, allowing children visiting the festival to write their name with their eyes and have it drawn by a giant, bright orange robot arm onto paper which they could take home with them.
The system allowed them to both draw with their eyes and type with a keyboard. The keyboard was by far the most popular with the kids and it would send the letters they made to the robot using a typeface designed by paralysed graffiti artist Tempt1, made with the original Eyewriter system.
This is the Eyewriter 2.0 hardware. Now a glasses free design which is more more accurate, using a hacked PS3 Eye camera with two external LED clusters to make reference glints in the eye.
Extras Special Thanks to Joost Broersen from Cinekid for making this happen!
Big thanks to Gijs Van Wee and Jan Van Laar from Polynorm who designed the hardware and software for the Livewriter and a big thanks to ABB for supplying us with the robot. Also big thanks to Golan for sharing his robot code and for inspiring the project!
Made with openFrameworks :)
The EyeWriter project is an ongoing collaborative research effort to empower people who are suffering from ALS with creative technologies. It is a low-cost eye-tracking apparatus & custom software that allows graffiti writers and artists with paralysis resulting from Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis to draw using only their eyes.

For the March 2010 issue of Boards Magazine, Emily Gobeille and I worked with Nexus Productions to develop an interactive cover experience called Rise and Fall. The software uses the amazing opensource Ferns tracking library together and openFrameworks, an opensource creative coding library written in C++.
Here is a little preview of the experience.
Software and cover:
Download the software and the cover as a pdf to try it out for your self:
A custom version of Fat Tag Deluxe – Katsu Edition hacked for projection bombing goodness!
Grab the original app here.
First 10 comments get a custom Fat Tag Deluxe – Katsu Editon with projector output sent to them. [ ps it requires dropping a bit of cash on a fancy white apple cable for it to be any use ]. Drop your email and uuid in the comments and once I have all ten I’ll send it over.
Using the awesome code posted here and by adding the Media Player Framework to your xcode project – all you need to do is add one file to your project ( UIApplication_TVOut.m ) and paste one line of code into the file that is managing your iPhone app:
So for us that was at this point in ofxiPhoneAppDelegate.mm ( from the OF iPhone 006 release ).
//Add this line to start outputting to TV / Projector
[[UIApplication sharedApplication] startTVOut];
Once you have done this your app will automatically output through the av cable to a projector or TV. You might see some weird artifacts on the iPhone screen but the output on the projector will be clear.
Here’s hoping that Apple will make this framework public soon – as soon as it is it will be added to the official Fat Tag Deluxe (iTunes link) version.
