I’m looking to make a project in which activity on a screen is generated by someone stepping on a painted surface (with bare conductive paint - https://www.bareconductive.com/).
This action of stepping on the surface will replace a mouseclick on the computer. I’m new to Processing - any ideas on how to do this?
add to that there is a special (old) version of arduino ( what i would usually not recommend )
where this arduino can talk to the PC “as a mouse” and
no extra processing code ( serial lib… ) would be needed.
Great. Thanks - on it now!
Brill! Thank you - will try this!
What is the mouse click on the computer going to do?
I was originally thinking it would generate some text (via a random text generator to appear on screen).
But now I would like it to trigger a video.
Will Processing be involved? Or just the mouse and\or keyboard interacting with PC desktop?
I would like the mouse-click to trigger the playing of a video within processing.
Related information is the bareconductive foot controller tutorial: https://www.bareconductive.com/make/make-a-drum-kit-for-your-feet/
Note that you will need bare feet for this to work! It almost certainly won’t work with rubber shoes, as they are not… conductive.
That’s brill - looking into this now thanks @jeremydouglass!
