Senior Projects 2014 Anthony DiValerio & Sang Cheon

For our Senior Project, we will be creating an interactive paint program using the Xbox 360 Kinect to control the various commands. Primarily, we will focus on working with GIMP, a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring, and/or Green Foot, an interactive Java development environment designed primarily for educational purposes at the high school and undergraduate level that allows for easy development of two-dimensional graphical applications, such as simulations and interactive games, to utilize the motion detection from the Xbox 360 Kinect to apply abstract paint functions such as splash. This will ultimately be a proof of concept and more showing how body motion can be detected to apply visual effects on a photo editing program such as GIMP. One of the main effects we would like to see is the paint splash effect on a photo with the effect intensity dependent on arm motion intensity. We would also like to further investigate other possibilities of free body motion that can be applied to our photo editing program which we believe may promote creativity.
