Note that this all day workshop is offered on the pre-event workshop day on April 20th and therefore is only available to those who have ‘The Works’ or the ‘ Workshop’ ticket.
Fingers have always been an important part of computation: from the moment we first started counting on our fingers (each digit representing an integer, the origin of the word “digital”), up to the present with finger-driven devices like keyboards, mice, and motion sensors being our primary means of interface with machines. In this workshop we’ll cover advanced techniques for sensing hands and fingers, as well as electric stimulation techniques for controlling fingers.
Participants should have some experience programming, and come with Processing and Max
installed. Other materials and source code will be distributed during the workshop.
