The Wave

by Juan Pablo García Sossa
Using Skintimacy to control Movement in Processing

Move5

The Wave is a simple example to control a wave movement in a Processing Sketch using your Skintimacy.

You can download the code here: WaveSketch
Here you will find a sketch for Processing another one for Wiring / Arduino and schematics like the shown below.

SkintimacyAllPlayers

You will need to connect your Skintimacy to your Wiring Board as shown. In this case you can use all the 4 Players and Master to control different waves in a Sketch.

You will need a 9v Battery, two (2) Crocodile Clips, some wires, a computer running Processing, your Wiring Board and of course your Skintimacy.

Notice that In- on your Skintimacy, goes to Wiring’s GND and to the Battery -

The Movement of different waves is controlled through Touch values. Thus when there is a lot of Touch, the waves will move, and when there is a lack of Touch, waves will stay still.

Imagine the red point as the Master and the Waves as Players. The can move when they touch the Master but not when they touch themselves among players.

The data is transferred to Processing trough the Serial.
MoveTouch

Skintimacy players are connected to Analog In on your Wiring. When Players and Master touch each other, the waves will move.
