Arduino Ultrasonic triggering of delayed mirror, explained (Composition by leon)
A pupil wanted to make a art installation where a mirror, when approaching, suddenly gave you your same reflection but with a 5 second delay. Here is the patch.
It is hold simple, and with a lot of explaining notes, to help beginners to get into Quartz. It is also an easy connection from the ArduinoSensor-Universe to Quartz. Therefore, it has several optional patches for variating input (keyboard as toggle, Arduino with potentiometer knob) for testing and developing. Inside the patch are the sketches for Arduino (just copy and paste), I attach the wiring-pictures made with Fritzing and the Arduino Library for the Sensor (original link is inside the sketch). There is also an option to avoid using this library.
For beginners: you have to download and install the Serial IO plugin of Kineme in http://kineme.net/release/SerialIO/10, therefore you have to login (and if necessary register).
I have been helped here in Kineme a lot, and hope this helps somebody else.
Another theme: I see little activity lately. Guess people dedicate themselves to other stuff, also the founding members. Anyway, I think Quartz is still a great platform for info processing with diverse in- and output (despite I use it mainly for live visuals) and still not deprecated by Apple, so, I would love to see a revival….
