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.

As you gaze into the Cloud Mirror, it gazes deep into you… and produces a residual image of your virtual personality.

The Cloud Mirror uses augmented reality, computer vision, and cloud computing resources in order to access Internet web services and then tie your physical image with your online identity. It instantly mines the Internet (aka “The Cloud”) for photographs and facts about the viewer and superimposes the sensitive data in a comic book thought bubble over their reflection.
