On Saturday 3rd September I visited the Brighton mini makers faire, taking place at the Dome. A remote controlled Dalek welcomed me in the foyer. Stalls of interactive projects led me to the back of the room where I found this kinect project. Hand Drawn is an experiment in collective gestural art. Participants are invited to draw a letter in space, which is recorded by a Kinect sensor. This was very neat and while I watched I saw small children and adults wait for their turn to draw. I see some great possibilities in remedial education and in early years writing. It uses open source drivers and processing to produce 3D fonts that can be printed.
