Natebu and Processing

I finally managed to upload a new movie about the data visualisation. One of the Natebu boards is connected to a mac that is running a Processing sketch. This bar chart was just for debugging. The door is now open to all kind of Processing applications.

    Pretty cool. What was the tool you used to display the bar graph? Was that custom or some 3rd party tool?

  2. natebu Says:

    Hi Bill
    I used Processing to write some custom code.
    If you don’t know Processing go check it out. Its quite easy and you can do amaing stuff.

    processing is awsome… as is your sensor.. alot like Microsoft’s Thinsight correct?

    I wonder if any of my p5 code would be helpful to your team..

    Keep up the good work

    What processor did you use for this? I am trying to do a similar project with an Arduino board if you have any sugestions it would help a lot. Great work on the processing sketch

  5. natebu Says:

    I also used an Arduino too.
    Or did you mean the computer? That’s a macBook Core 2.
    There is quite a lot of information about the project in the other blog postings.
    Let me know when you have any specific questions.

    Can you measure the distance between a “pixel” and an obstacle? And what is the sensibility (10cm, 1m, etc)?

    I really like your works, I’ve just discovered it passing by the microcontent part of the Digital tools blog… I was wondering do you use sound too?

  7. beart Says:

    Another question… Do you encode the IR signal in order to avoid parasites or there are not that much parasites?

  8. natebu Says:

    Hello Beart

    A single board could indeed be a nice sound interface. I’m not that much of a sound guy so I haven’t done anything yet.

    Yes measuring the distance to an object works quite well.
    With good conditions (no other ir-light) to a range of about 50cm.
    Because it worked well in the prototype the IR signal is not modulated but it is planed to do this in a next version.

    Hey, I was just looking on youtube and noticed your amazing interactive LED board. I’m really really impressed! I thought you might find my toy to be cute:

    What do you think about using capacitive proximity sensors in place of your IR sensors?

  10. Mattins Says:

    Somehow i missed the point. Probably lost in translation 🙂 Anyway … nice blog to visit.

    cheers, Mattins.

    Whoa, this is incredible!!! I too stumbled across your site by accident, but I’m sure glad I did! I’m very curious; do you have any pointers for a beginner at Processing and at circuitry to build something as incredible as this? And… As far as I could gather, the Arduino board is the thing that connects the computer to your board… Could you explain how you did that? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I can’t wait to see more! (I just subscribed to your blog!)

    Thanks so much!!!
