Bars

by Juan Pablo García Sossa
Using Skintimacy to increase a Rectangle size in Processing

Rect5

Bars is a simple example to several bars in a Processing Sketch using your Skintimacy.

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

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 behaviour of the different bars is controlled through Touch values. Thus when there is a lot of Touch, the Bars of the respective side will increase, and when there is a lack of Touch, they will decrease.

Try to compose different visualisations as you touch with other Players. Remember that the values are taken when a Player and the Master touch.

The data is transferred to Processing trough the Serial.
RectTouch

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