Enrique Ramos Melgar, Ciriaco Castro Díez, Przemek Jaworski


If you've performed a few Arduino tinkering and questioned the way you may well include the Kinect—or the wrong way around—then this ebook is for you. The authors of Arduino and Kinect initiatives will assist you create 10 remarkable, artistic tasks, from easy to advanced. You'll additionally the way to comprise Processing on your venture design—a language similar to the Arduino language.

The ten tasks are conscientiously designed to construct in your talents at each step. beginning with the Arduino and Kinect an identical of "Hello, World," the authors will take you thru a various diversity of initiatives that exhibit the massive diversity of percentages that open up whilst Kinect and Arduino are combined.

* Gesture-based handheld remote control. keep watch over units and residential home equipment with hand gestures.
* Kinect-networked Puppet. Play with a actual puppet remotely utilizing your entire physique.
* temper Lamps. construct your individual set of responsive, gesture controllable LED lamps.
* Drawing robotic. keep an eye on a drawing robotic utilizing a Kinect-based tangible desk.
* Remote-controlled car. Use your physique gestures to manage a sensible vehicle.
* Biometric Station. Use the Kinect for biometric popularity and checking physique Mass Indexes.
* 3D Modeling Interface. the right way to use the Arduino LilyPad to construct a wearable 3D modelling interface.
* 360º Scanner. construct a turntable scanner and experiment any item 360º utilizing just one Kinect.
* Delta robotic. construct and keep watch over your individual speedy and exact parallel robotic.
