Project Ideas / Buttons Everywhere (Key Mapping)
« on: February 24, 2008, 01:48:56 AM »
Idear: A method to use the whiteboard without monitor, or independent from the monitors video output.
Uses: Can act as an interface for static, unchanging 'touchscreen' areas.
For example: I could then draw a mediaplayer on my chest next to my bed...and use it. I could make my left side of the couch click previous music, and the right side of my couch next music.. and so on..the possible uses are endless.

Principle of use:
step1: define whiteboard with the 4dot method.
step2: define button 1 area with the 4dot method.
step3: assign key or button to buttonarea1
step4: repeat steps 2 and 3 for as much as neccesary.

For this to work, only minor changes are needed. The only additional script would be the assigning of keys and buttons as the rest is allready there.

Necessary changes to whiteboard: 
Atm whiteboard consists of
-4dot initialisation script
-mousecontrol script

For my suggestion, it would need:
-4dot initialisation script
-button map script


For interaction this way, some situations prefer a real button instead of a pen.. for this i suggest using led coasters.

Hi again..

I have a suggestion that would allow for

and possibly even (but with some more hassle as for the leds)
Dance Dance revolution / Pump it Up / Beatmania /Pop'n Music
stuff like that..

It will allow for custom interfacing with countless serious apps as well..

The suggestion is following:

Like with the whiteboard, you define the screen,
then you define parts of the screen and assign buttons or keypresses to those parts.

Thats it..
in the case of BeatMania you could then define those parts as drums, and have your drumsticks have leds.
With dance dance revolution, you could devine 4 squares on the ground, and wear 2 leds on the shoos..admitted..this isnt most practicle and does not allow for hands as well.. but it should work

Ofcourse this would have applications far beyond a drummachine and stuff with huge squares, but its an easy picturable implementation, so i hope someone sees the value in a application like this and compensates my lack of programming skills, makes it and shares it ;)

As i was searching some stuff today, i found a car cigarette lighter recharge cable...A really cheap one for sale for +- 1 euro at dump stores. was perfect to make into a ledpen, and i used the available mechanism as pushbutton for the led, so in this version..clicking is pushing the pen softly on the surface.

In the last picture the pen with battery and led in place and ready to go.

here some more pictures, now with a button as well.

Hi..first of all...thank you so much for these great, and shared innovations.

I was wondering if anyone adapted this script to work with a media player.
It could then be used for ridefilms or collercoasterclips.
this would greatly enhance the immersiveness of the ride.
