Demonstrating the use of the BeagleBoard.org microcomputer used as a WiFi hotspot HTTP webserver + webcam/audio recorder + LED Suit brains. The beagbleboard is running a custom Linux kernel, using Apache+PHP+SQLite to serve web content, zoneminder for webcam and audio capture, and a custom program I wrote in C to talk to the LED panels via the onboard wireless web server.

In this video I'm demonstrating the ability for smooth, colored animation (line bounces), animated sprites (ft. Mario, Pac-Man, Spaceinvaders, "Balloons"), and wireless/remote interactivity with Tetris via an iPod/iPhone. This is Panel #10. Next step is multi-panel animation for a larger, cooler full-body effect! Coachella, I'm almost ready for you!

I recorded this a week ago - unscripted can you tell? Haha. I finally edited out my more dumb ramblings so I could upload this, but plenty left for you to mock at. I must apologize for the blurry closeups as my camera doesn't like going between macro mode and normal mode without stopping recording. If you're wondering about my awesome birthing hips; I just carry lots of stuff in my pockets (tools, mostly).
