ALGORITHM:

 

GO WHERE YOU ARE!

KEEP MOVING!

 

The ball is being scanned  by webcam, which is connected to computer.

The computer calculates the position of the ball, according to which it controls 4 fans to stear the ball by blowing the wind.

The present position of the ball is also defined as target position of the ball – where it has to go.

Since the algorithm is composed of two contradicting commands, and the whole system of controlling the ball by blowing wind is not very precise, the ball doesn't stay still, but rather keeps moving in an intricate and unpredictable way.

All the programming is done in Max/Msp – Jitter programming environment.
