Step 1: Downloading the Primary Software
Download the ZIP-file here: http://www.kamibox.de/files/Julias_Eyes.zip
There are 5 versions of the software in the ZIP-file:
Choose your Operating System and start the app. The controls are:
+ Increase Sensitivity
- Decrease Sensitivity
SPACE Change Mode
MOUSE Move Eyes
What does it do?
Julia listens to the sound coming into Line In (if your PC has an internal mic, that is Line In)
Her eyes react to sound in 2 different modes:
Size Mode: The left iris changes size according to the amount of bass, the right iris according to mid-low frequency, the left pupil to mid-high-frequency, right pupil high pitch. (from your point of view)
Color Mode: Same reaction, but size changes aren’t too severe, instead the color of the iris changes.
If you turn the sensitivity down to Zero, there will be no eye morphing any more, only the movement you do with the mouse.
Quick loud noises frighten her. She blinks when you clap your hands or the music starts to go wild.
Now how should this be of great importance for humankind?
It isn’t. I thought of it mainly as a beamer projection for DJs and VJs, visualizing their sound in a creepy yet fascinating way. (Thanks, Youtube-comment-man, for this substantial summary)
Or without using the sound feature; You can just project it on a wall, following people. Scary enough.
If you are happy with that, that’s it.
Next step would be using the iPhone to control it or changing the code, or making the cursor disappear.
