ofxParticles Debug View Art

Here are samples of ‘Debug View Art’ from a project we recently finished at Dpt.

Our client wanted a physical and interactive presence in selected concert hall lobbies before and after each show. We developed an air instrument (piano and guitar) installation where users were able to ‘control’ the visuals and the music through simples hand gestures alone. We used both a Leap Motion and a Kinect sensor devices as input.

Elie and I used much of our heavily modified fork of ofxParticles and of course the inevitable ofxUI. We also received amazing help and OpenGL tips from James Acres.


The Kinect and Leap Motion data were received, smoothed and send over OSC to the main application by our bridge application.


Here are shots of our development setup and the final structure:
