MAMI - TouchDesigner Bridge

In this talk Javier Alvarez Bailen will tackle a problem that he kept encountering - clients requesting interactive installations that would require multiple devices (i.e. radas, cameras, various sensors). Due to the number and variation of devices designers would be forced to build and configure a new TouchDesigner project each time.


In response to this challenge Bailen and his team designed MAMI, a web application system that allows all of an installation’s devices to be connected and integrated in one central place. MAMI is easy to configure from your web browser and your mobile devices. Once your system is setup, TouchDesigner, with the help of a custom component, can receive values from input devices via Open Sound Control (OSC) or WebSockets. As a result, your focus can be on your interactive design with all sensor data readily available via a unified interface.
