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.

Syyn Labs is delighted to have been commissioned to install a new interactive piece at the Santa Monica GLOW Festival on Sept. 25th, 2010. This is a quick introductory film.

It goes on display at twilight and wil run continuously until 3am, but get there early. They’re expecting quite a crowd!

Special thanks to Hector Alvarez and David Guttman for putting this film together, and the whole team for working so hard getting this project together.
