It is one of the interactive work by Boffswana, one step beyond the regular face detection.
It is a proof of concept work. I use a PureData patch to control an Arduino board with PWM output to drive a small computer fan. The load is managed by a ULN2803A IC. The blowing power is not linearly proportional to the numerical value sent from PureData. It is quite difficult to sustain a floating position in the middle of the air.
It is the documentation of my new work – Swing. Enjoy.
This is my experiment with the Playstation Eye camera with the infra-red filter removed and replaced with a film of floppy disk.
