Javascript to AS3 – Blobby blobby

Ever since I saw Jeff Han’s lava lamp multitouch demo, I’ve been interested in ‘blobs’ or ‘meta-balls’. There’s a great new HTML5/javascript demo of interacting with blobs (moving, splitting, merging, etc) http://hakim.se/experiments/html5/blob/03/.

Audiotouch OS – Flash Multi-touch Audio Environment

Well, I never did a ‘proper’ video of my Audiotouch work, so after 2 years I decided to reshoot some video and experiment with my new HD video camera. The video is also in preparation for another how-to video that I’m developing that builds off the Mtmini video (check that out if you haven’t ) and shows how to create a simple multi-touch surface quick and easy.

I’m hoping to eventually get back to these applications and improve on a few of them. They’ve gone untouched for almost 2 years and were originally written prior to the iphone, ipad, and microsoft surface. It’s amazing how far the technology has come in such a short time.

Wall Pong (WONG) – Interactive Multiplayer Multitouch Pong Game – Now with source code!!!


Wall Pong is an interactive multi-player multitouch pong type game I wrote in AS3 a couple years ago. The aim is to get the ball into the opposing goal. You can see Wong within my Audiotouch OS software. I’ve been meaning to release the source code and game for quite some time and finally I had the chance to clean up the code (it still could use WAY more cleaning and probably re-factoring), but it’s in good enough shape for others to use.

Are You a Visionary or an Opportunist?

Some people are visionaries, while others are opportunist. Which one are you? After listening to the Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders Series, I thought I’d open my thoughts on the subject of visionaries and opportunists.

Drupal 6 – Creating Activity Stream with Views Custom SQL Query: Merging multiple views – Part 1

If you’re using Drupal, you’re probably using views. If you’re using views, than you’ve probably wanted to build a view that involved combining content and found out it was hard or almost impossible through the views UI.

For example, if you’ve ever tried to build a single view of all content (posts, comments, flags, relationships, etc) into a single list, you’ve probably found that you can’t. However, you can easily build independent post views, comment views, flag views, and relationship views.  Since that’s the case, why can’t we merge all these views into a single view through the views UI? Well you can, and this article hopefully will give the basic information needed to start merging your views

Proud to announce the open beta launch of sparkon.net! Call for participation!!

After lots of hard work, I am proud to announce the open beta launch of a new social platform I’ve been developing for creative and emergent interactive technology called sparkon. If you like my blog, the MTmini, Audiotouch or any of my work – you’re going to love sparkon!

sparkon creates a platform for sharing, learning, discussing, promoting, and meeting people with interests in spreading information in new ways and between people through the use of creative and emergent interactive technology. sparkon is a social platform for people that are sparked by creative and emergent interactive technology. On sparkon you’ll find projects demonstrating the latest interactive techniques, applications, software frameworks, and case studies involving creative and emergent technology.

5th Annual ACM Conference on Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2010

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

5th Annual ACM Conference on Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2010

The Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2010 Conference (ITS) is a
premiere venue for presenting research in the design and use of new
and emerging tabletop and interactive surface technologies. As a new
community, we embrace the growth of the discipline in a wide variety
of areas, including innovations in ITS hardware, software, design, and
projects expanding our understanding of design considerations of ITS
technologies and of their applications.

Building on their success in previous years, ITS again features Papers
and Notes presentations, as well as tutorials, posters, and
demonstrations tracks. For the first time, ITS 2010 will also include
a doctoral symposium.

Beta Invties: Sign up now! For people interested in innovative, creative, emergent, and interactive technology!

Beta invites are not needed anymore – the site is launched!!

http://sethsandler.com/technology-multitouch/proud-announce-launch-techsparkedcom/

Are you interested in innovative, emergent, and interactive technology (multitouch, gestures, eye tracking, augmented reality, creative tech, etc) or the interactions we will have with information in the future? Do you create emergent experiences, have interactive applications/software or code frameworks for building interactive installations, applications, or projects? If so, then this opportunity really is for you.

I have some beta invites for a new website that’ll be doing a rapid beta test within the next week. For the beta, we’re especially looking for people that already have or are in the process of creating projects, applications and software frameworks within the interactive, emergent, and creative technology domain.
