At last a free online course I’ve really wanted to take has become open https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/creative-coding .

You will need to download the processing environment to take part, which I have already started to look at myself (processing.org) alongside a couple of great books – Processing, a handbook for designers and Getting started with processing –  I have taken myself through a first few stages but going through the processing showcase pages they have a whole vimeo group devoted to it and I just had to share this beautiful example of what I want to do with processing.

It uses a kinect camera and depthkit to record data that processing then interprets… great stuff…
