First draft version of a poster to accompany Tweelo, my 2015 Grad Project.
I’ve been working on the finishing touches on my program Tweelo, including the slight updating of visuals, placement of text on the screen, overlapping text and aspect ratio.
In the attempt to build a touchscreen using Kinect and Processing, I’ve constructed a screen with material that stretches when touched. The change in depth of the screen is picked up by the Kinect camera and is displayed in an ‘Average Point Tracking’ Processing sketch.
Social media provides an outlet for anyone to speak their mind while providing public opinions, thoughts and advice. Even though individual Tweets or Facebook posts may seem unimportant or trivial, they comprise a large set of data which provides invaluable information on society.
I’ve been able to access the public twitter stream using the Twitter4j library, and filter the results by geolocation.
