For this project I used a bunch of different memes and allowed the user to control them by using an Xbox 360 controller. The controller allows the user to switch between 5 different videos. Four of them are controlled using the A, B, X, and Y buttons while the fifth is triggered by accidentally hitting a certain button. A sixth video plays only when the user hasn’t hit a button in over a minute. The user also has the ability to use different effect on the videos. These effect are triggered by the bumpers and can be cycled through by hitting one bumper multiple times. The intensity of each of the effects is controlled by the right joystick. Overall, I wish I had more time to work on this project and wish I hadn’t run into as many technical problems as I would have loved to be able to do much more with this project.
For this test I just took a previous assignment and added additional functionality. I looked at the geometric abstraction assignment and tweaked it so that I could control the scale of the objects from 0 to 1 with the soft potentiometer.
