Experimental interactive animations with Arduino and Animata
Using an Arduino board, various hardware, and a real-time connection back to a PC running Animata - a real-time animation editor, Matti has devised what could be descibed as a futuristic interactive artwork piece or a nightmare generator. The system is loosely mounted on a vintage Viewmaster, and contains an accelerometer which measures your head movements. This data is sent back to the PC to help generate the interactive animations.
