Workshops | 工作坊

Learn how to make all kinds of stuffs! 

MSP/Jitter Workshop (Nov 9-10) Max is the environment you use to create visual programs, called patches, plus a set of building blocks (called objects) used in those programs. MSP is a set of Max objects for audio and signal processing. Jitter is a set of Max objects for video, graphics, and matrix data processing. 

MAX是您使用的环境,创造视听节目,被称为修补程序,加上这些程序中使用了一套积木(称为对象)。 MSP是一组音频信号处理的最大对象。Jitter是最大的一组视频,图形和矩阵数据处理的对象。

Android & Robots

June 8th, 2011 § 1 comment § permalink

Android Open Accessory Development Kit.

The Android 3.1 platform (also backported to Android 2.3.4) introduces Android Open Accessory support, which allows external USB hardware (an Android USB accessory) to interact with an Android-powered device in a special “accessory” mode. When an Android-powered powered device is in accessory mode, the connected accessory acts as the USB host (powers the bus and enumerates devices) and the Android-powered device acts as the USB device. Android USB accessories are specifically designed to attach to Android-powered devices and adhere to a simple protocol (Android accessory protocol) that allows them to detect Android-powered devices that support accessory mode.
Workshops are weekly and will explore both the development on the Android-side and the micro-controllers side – touching on all aspects of mechanical, electrical and software engineering of a robot. In particular, we will look together at the use of ADK-compatible hardware boards, such as the Google IOIO board or new hardware offerings from Seeedstudio. Participation for XinCheJian members who’ve paid their dues is free. For the non-members, the fee is 50 RMB per workshop. For more information, look at the “Android & Robots” wiki. Don’t forget to fulfill the necessary pre-requisites and join the [email protected] mailing list! Note that this is a collaborative workshop, so we expect everyone to contribute and participate actively.
