In this Instructable we're going to detail how you can use Spacebrew toolkit to connect your smartphone (via its built in accelerometer) to manipulate aspects of your openFrameworks sketch.
We created an installation and allowed participants to shake a cell phone to change the size and shape of an oF mesh sketch. However, participants could easily just load the page on their own wifi/3G enabled device to manipulate the sketch's variables.
You will need the following:
Step 1: Download Spacebrew libraries for oF
1st library : ofxLibwebsockets
2nd library: ofxSpacebrew
Implement them in your openFrameworks sketch however you like, but we used oF's Project Generator and selected these in the "addon" menu. It is a really easy way to seamlessly put addons in your sketches.
Make sure you follow the directions on the GITHUB READMEs for both of these libraries. You have to delete a line to use the Project Generator. It's not hard, just easy to overlook.
