Syyn Labs Workshop: Computer Vision & Kinect Hacking

Sunday, January 29th, 12pm-4pm at Droplabs near Dowtown LA

Limited space – RSVP here: http://syynlabs.eventbrite.com

WHAT: You can gaze longingly into your robot’s eyes… but does it gaze back? Computers can perceive the visual world through special cameras, and by employing algorithms and techniques generally known as “computer vision.” In this workshop, you’ll learn some basic computer vision techniques which you can use to make interactive art, perceptive robots, or just fun games.

WHO: If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at “Kinect hacking,” but you have no previous experience with computer vision, then this workshop is for you. However… Computer vision is a sophisticated topic, and should not be undertaken as a first programming pursuit. You should be comfortable writing code in a language like C, C++, Java, or Python.

FROM CNN: (See article here…)

“Everyone knows the host of CNN’s The Next List, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, is a multi-talented individual. He’s a neurosurgeon, a television show host, an author and scuba diver. But now you can pencil in ‘fire eater.’ Yes, you read it correctly, fire eater.

Out in L.A. filming a profile on the highly creative artist collective Syyn Labs Dr. Gupta had the opportunity of sampling a fiery feast presented to him by Eric Gradman, a lead engineer.  Hardly a stranger to extreme challenges Dr. Gupta took to fire eating like an pro, extinguishing the flames in a single gulp.

Stay tuned to CNN’s The Next List, airing Sundays at 2 P.M. E.T. on CNN, to see more with Dr. Sanjay Gupta. And coming soon we’ll have an extraordinary show on the eclectic bunch who make up Syyn Labs.”

Syyn Labs Workshop: Learning Adobe Illustrator for Rapid Ideation

Sunday, January 15th, 12pm-4pm at Droplabs near Dowtown LA

RSVP Here: http://syynlabs.eventbrite.com

WHAT: This workshop aims to teach attendees how to become comfortable with Adobe Illustrator as a means of putting down ideas and sketches as quickly as possible in a highly editable and reconfigurable format. In essence, we’ll be showing how to use Illustrator as a digital napkin for doodling.

WHO: Aspiring designer? Creative engineer? Visionary entrepreneur? Do you want a good way to visualize your ideas? The workshop is aimed at novices who are either completely unfamiliar with the software, or have some experience but havent yet developed a personal workflow (“played around with it for a bit”). No drawing skill required.
