Congratulations to Russ Maschmeyer, whose thesis project, MOTIV, is featured in the Thursday, July 21 edition of The New York Times. MOTIV is an open source project that uses Kinect to give digital musicians direct control of emotional expression by interpreting their physical gestures in real-time. In “With a Wave of the Hand, Improvising on Kinect,” the writer uses MOTIV as a lead to a piece about the sustaining popularity of Kinect among programmers, researchers, hackers, and tinkers alike.

To watch the MOTIV, and all thesis presentations from OPEN IxD, the MFA Interaction Design Festival, take a look at the projects page.
