Lately I've been spending a lot of time working with serial communication in PComp and once the power finally returned to my apartment I wanted to try to control video with sensor input. We were also working on background replacement in ICM so I combined both tools.
In the spirit of hurricane sandy and now the nor'easter that soaked me on the way to school, my sketch places you in a video of a beautiful day or in a snow storm. I used a temperature sensor to switch between the nice day & snowy day, a SoftPot to control the speed of playback and a reed sensor to start or stop playback.
It works and produces some intense transitions when the temperature fluctuates. Weather is truly a nightmare.
