A cloth that gives haptic feedback. It translates touch into sound and vision.
Made with vvvv and a Kinect 2 sensor.
The installation „Responsive Fabric“ turns an seemingly ordinary cloth into a tangible interface. An interaction with the surface of the fabric creates a multi-sensory experience that expands perception through a virtual layer. Touching the cloth generates acoustic and visual stimuli. By altering the physical form through pressing and stretching the fabric, the object also transforms visually and produces sounds. With the translation of haptics into sound and image, the object becomes an audiovisual instrument and an interface between reality and virtuality.Done at the Muthesius University for fine Arts and Design Kiel.

Currently shown at the Visible Sound Exhibition at Kunstkraftwerk Leipzig.

Excellent! Would you be able to share any details about it? Basic patch setup, other tech used like OpenFrameworks?

@vvvvProj thx! sure, but it's nothing complex, just a kinect2, some filter and texture effects from the addonpack. Of course some mapping magic ;) but if you insist i can show you how we did it

Hey @MultiNIL,

Absolutely, it would be much appreciated. As much detail as you can tolerate. I'm wrapping my head around Kinect and really the whole graphics pipeline, so less complexity is great.
