Learn how to track human motion using devices like the Kinect, RealSense or Leap Motion and use the acquired data as input for your interactive installations.
Build quick user interfaces to easily tweak parameters and use protocols like OSC, MIDI, DMX to control external devices.

All this using the visual programming environment vvvv, which does not require you to write any code. A few mouse clicks are enough to get your interactive prototypes running.


What the vvvv?

vvvv is a visual programming environment that allows you to realize ideas quickly without the need to write any code. But if you want, you can also write C# code for it and use any .NET library with it! To give you an idea of the areas vvvv can be helpful in, here is a list of buzz words vvvv is often associated with:

  • Generative Design
  • Interaction Design
  • Data Visualization
  • Computer Vision
  • Rapid Prototyping
  • Physical Computing
  • Projection Mapping
  • Show Control

What you will learn

– how to work with the visual programming environment vvvv (version gamma)
– Track hands (Leap Motion) and full bodies (Kinect2, Nuitrack) to create interaction
– Do 2d gesture recognition
– Create simple UserInterfaces


– Bring a Windows laptop
– Bring a 3 button mouse
– No prior knowledge of vvvv needed
