DEVELOPMENT </p> <ul><li>Animations </li></ul> <ul><li>As the number of participant's presence is being detected in the installation respective animations will be displayed on the wall.</li></ul> <ul><li>The animations speed will also change in pace from slower to faster depending on the mood, sad will show slow animation and happy will show the fastest animations. </li></ul> <p> 8. DEVELOPMENT </p> <ul><li>Sound </li></ul> <ul><li>The installation keep into consideration the types of sound to use.

TECHNIQUE </p> <ul><li>The installation uses a wall projection where peoples movement are captured by the webcams.</li></ul> <ul><li>There are 10 hotspots which are marked on the floor and as soon as the hot spot is activated zone trigger communicate with flash to determine which animation to be displayed </li></ul> <ul><li>The technique used here is a multiple key press detection, which was programmed in adobe flash </li></ul> <p> 18. TECHNIQUES </p> <ul><li>SOFTWARES USED ARE: </li></ul> <ul><li>Adobe Photoshop: for creation of the graphics and digitalinterfaces </li></ul> <ul><li>Adobe after effect: for the creation of animations, adding other special effects and sounds </li></ul> <ul><li>Adobe flash: for coding and programming the application </li></ul> <ul><li>Webcam zone trigger: for motion detection</li></ul> <p> 19. TECHNIQUES </p> <ul><li>HARDWARE USED ARE: </li></ul> <ul><li>Computer: was used for the entire process of developing the project </li></ul> <ul><li>Projector: for projecting visuals on he wall </li></ul> <ul><li>Two web cams: to capture participantmovement </li></ul> <ul><li>Speakers: for sound output </li></ul> <p> 20. PROBLEMS </p> <ul><li>Throughout the process of developing the project certain problems were encountered, which include; </li></ul> <ul><li>Software problems </li></ul> <ul><li>Delayed detection </li></ul> <ul><li>Camera configurations </li></ul> <ul><li>Cross platforms- mac to windows </li></ul> <p> 21. FUTURE PLANS/IMPROVEMENTS </p> <ul><li>To use a more accurate and smooth way for motion detection </li></ul> <ul><li>To use one platform e.g. windows or mac only </li></ul> <p> 22. THANK YOU </p>
