Constellations – new project for Nashville Metro Arts!

So I am taking my new friends from Constellations out for a spin today at the Adventure Science Center in Nashville. There is a large maker day event with MTRAS and NashMicro and I will be joining them around 1 in the main auditorium – to the left before the ticket counters. This is the free part of the museum.

More official dates will be posted soon!

I have created a brand new interactive audiovisual animation using the Xbox Kinect and there are 6 characters: SunSynth, Glide, Spike, CatEye, FireFly and BlueGhost.

Raspberry Pi update

Honestly this computer is not very user friendly IMHO. Nevertheless, I have gotten my Raspberry Pi 1B to run the Jessie operating system with Wifi and Bluetooth now working. This now will talk to my Wii Remotes and I ran a Python script which typed out text versions of the buttons I pushed. Yay! I’m looking forward to seeing what I can do with Python scripting, the Wii’s and some outboard electronics.
