Project: Learning Machine Learning
This project I worked on with Bora Kim and Rachel Lane during the one week course Machine Learning with Andreas Refsgaard and Gene Kogan. We decided to create a Batman Fight Simulator that would blast out the iconic fight words when it detected punches and kicks.
We wanted to honour Adam West who had passed away the week before. And I've always loved the art direction of the old Batman TV-series and movie.
Gestures are captured through a Kinect camera and classified using the machine learning software Wekinator. Gestures are assigned values and sent to Processing. In Processing the gestures trigger effects such as “KAPOW!”, “WHAM!”, “BAM!” with matching sound effects and vectorised graphics from the original Batman.
