Next conference: RecPad 2010

I will be presenting a poster at RecPad 2010, alongside Guilherme Fernandes. We will present our Trainable DTW-classifier for feeg gesture recognition, which we built on a foot-controller device that allows to control Mt-Djing application, as shown below. (Controlling Mt-Djing with feet gestures) The program is available now here.

Installing pd-extended on Ubuntu karmic 64 bits

Grab the autobuild from jaunty (9.04) at http://autobuild.puredata.info/auto-build/latest. The lastest build for jaunty x86_64 (AMD architecture) is: – http://autobuild.puredata.info/auto-build/latest/Pd-0.42.5-extended-ubuntu-jaunty-x86_64.deb Then it will complain about libraw1934-8 because Karmic only has the .11 version of that lib in its repositories, so grab the jaunty package and install it: – http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/amd64/libraw1394-8/download Now, run the .deb installer from the […]

Allowing DJs to share their patches!

Allowing DJs to share their patches!

Multitouch Djing: Loading Objects via XML from PedroLopes on Vimeo. This is just showing the Objects in the interface being XML defined, that can be read at start up and create the patch for the DJ. This will allow users of the interface to share patches, save, load, etc…

Recognizing gestures by the sound they make (DTW and Puredata)

This prototype follows the idea of [1] where Harrison uses a microphone to record and recognize a set of defined gestures. In this implementation we follow the same approach by using the Dynamic Time Warp algorithm[2,3] but propose it under a different setting: the PureData programming environment[4]. This research for IMMI course at IST will […]

Prototype#3: Yet flash (better architecture) and PureData

Prototype Flash and PureData #3 from PedroLopes on Vimeo. This video shows a small-tiny-atom-sized prototype that uses Pd (PureData) and Flex/ActionScript compiled on Win (XP) with only the Open Source Flex SDK. The only reason for not deploying it in Ubuntu is that flashserver external pd object is not present. I will replace it with […]

Actionscript logging…

The default way to log is using Trace(“something”), this sends a print message to the console of your flash IDE (mine is Eclipse). Although other alternatives can bring you better results, and don’t need to launch your project in debug mode! Here’s my top two choices: Flash Vizzi Debugger (java application) Vizzi allows you to […]
