Skataviz is an experimental prototype developed by Design I/O which uses an iPhone or iPod touch attached to a skateboard to record its motion and visualize its movement as 3D data augmented over live video.
Using the gyroscope and accelerometer sensors of the iPod, the software is able to recreate the motion of the run, detecting moments of high rotation and acceleration as ‘tricks’ and visualizing the angles and axis of the boards movement.
The project uses openFrameworks for both the iOS sensor recorder and the desktop visualization.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
