Crooner Chewer (2008)

Video sampler, interactive video controller or interactive movie device.


A user interface developed with Processing is cast on a methacrylate surface.  A wiimote tracks an IR-LED pointer that the player uses to handle the user interface.  The wiimote then sends the tracking information via bluetooth to the computer, which processes the information and updates the user interface casted on the methacrylate surface.

There are 3 audio engines running:
