In my 2nd semester at Carnegie Mellon University I took the class: Interactive Art and Computational Design (IACD). The class was a fast paced course that introduced students to a number of computational mediums.
This was a quick, overnight project that involved facial recognition technology. Basically I hooked up a simple version of the game PacKitty (a game I coded, information can be found here) to my face. The script allowed me to control PacKitty and eat cherries by moving my head and opening my mouth.
