Next Sunday at 7pm at the next Make:Philly meeting I’ll be doing a small presentation about utilizing Blue Melon’s line of BlueSense hardware kits, how they can work with Flash and how the kit stacks up compared to similar systems (Making Things Teleo, Make:Kit, Phidgets, etc). Blue Melon is a company from the Netherlands that makes this great line of hardware modules (sensors, controllers, devices, etc) that communicate over Bluetooth and USB. They have software kits for integrating into MAX/MSP, Processing, Pure Data, Flash, Mono/C#, C, VB.Net and Java. The really cool aspect of this system is the Bluetooth integration – so you aren’t tethered by a cable to your project and computer which allows for some really interesting capabilities. I’ve been playing with my kit for a few weeks now, and I hope to have my little project integrating it with Flash and projector apps like MDM:Zinc polished up for the meeting. I’m going to post a full review of the kit here after the presentation next Sunday.
