Air Board

air board Design and programming: Erez kikin-Gil – (Tiltool) The Air-board allows users to reduce their dependency on fixed surfaces while they interact with computational devices. Using movable sensors users can define their desirable interaction space to draw, mark select or perform other actions. The Air-Board is based on two Parallax Ping sonic sensors that provide the X and Y parameters. The two sensors are connected to the Wiring I/O board that sends the data over the serial port to the computer. I modified Hernando Barragán™s code to detect both sensors and Tom Igoe™s readBytes() code to read the data. From that point I used processing to create a canvas that shows my hand movement in space, in real time, as a drawing.
