I've been one of the lucky persons to have been at the diyfestival.ch last weekend. A festival for art and technology hosted at the Dynamo in Zürich. Apart from there amazing collection of Theremins, there were quite some impressive installations, performances and talks.
Under the motto do it
yourself together; we've conducted a touch-screen workshop based on frontera and http://fronteraproject.net. The standards were quite high: One team set up improvised screens using a beamer and two web-cams. While an other team worked with pure-data, MAX/MSP|| and processing.org|processing on interaction and design. Communication between the screen and visualization software was done with OSC. We ended up with a virtual Theremin, some touchable flame/interactive flare animations and even improved justpoint software tools with long awaited user-feedback. Really impressive for only an afternoon of work.
It's been one of the best hands-on workshops and even better you had an amazing taste for music and community. I had a great time. Many thanks to the organizers of the festival and anyone involved.
