The GO sequencer


[Guy John] sent in this cool sequencer project. He’s using the game Go as the input. A web camera pics up the location of the pieces on the grid and plots them in his sequencing software. You can see that it is still very much in progress, but it is coming along nicely. He openly admits that it may never be completely practical. There is still so much to be improved to get it even comfortably usable, such as motion detection to remove his hand from the mix when re locating the Go pieces. This project is very similar to the Skittles interface that we posted back in July.  It would be kind of interesting, though probably repetitive, to actually play a game of go and listen to the variations in the music while you play.

  1. Awesome! I’ve been wanting to program something just like this for a while now. I play Go every week at a coffee shop in town and we’re always looking for an easier way to record our games. This program would be great in conjunction with my laptop’s build-in webcam.
