Colortizer is open source software that translates a grid of color-tagged objects into a matrix of IDs and their rotation to serve projects like the open-source "CityScope" platform: http://cp.media.mit.edu/city-simulation, [Youtube: Lego Scanning Technology Invented by MIT] (https://youtu.be/3jvmoj7pLZU)
- Arrange a Meeting with Ira before making any commits to this repository.
- Avoid forking the repository and instead opt to make a new branch.
- Colortizer is pretty scalable and flexible in its back-end but you might not see this from looking at the front-end. Expanding the grid capactiy wouldn't be terribly hard as long as you're willing to poke around the back-end.
- Clone Repository to your machine
- Download Processing 2.2.1 from Processing.org and set its preferences such that the Sketchbook location is the Colortizer/Processing/ Folder. ( We use Processing 2 since Colortizer uses some libraries which have not yet migrated to Processing 3 )
- Re-start Processing 2. Now all of the sketches should show up under File>Sketchbook>
- Colortizer takes a webcam input of colored tags and turns it into a matrix of IDs & rotations passed via UDP
- DO NOT edit the Processing/libraries/ folder needed to run Processing:
Colortizer scripts are compiled and tested with Processing IDE 2.2.1 on Windows7 and OSX on a Logitech C920 Webcam. As of January 12, 2016, the following Processing libraries are required. These should be kept up to date in the repository’s Colortizer/Processing/libraries/ folder:
- OpenCV by Greg Borenstein
- UDP by Stephane Cousot
