Connection between audio and video

A webcam will videotape the paper and stick movement; then, a computer will process the images to determine the drum stick positions. Once the microphone detects the audio signal created by the player hitting the drums on the paper, the visual information showing the current position of the drum stick is used to generate the correct sounds.

Reduce processing delay

Whether the stick hits the paper or not, we processed the snapshots and saved the current stick location in an array. Only when the stick hits the paper, which is detected by the impulse from the microphone, we took out the position information to generate the correct sounds.

Sound division

Below is how we divide our paper. Each part corresponds to a unique sound. In total there are four parts. The stick position determines which sound to play by the computer.

Playing different sounds

i=0; playing=0;sample_rate_devider=3; while(1==1)i = i+1; if (sample_rate_devider==3)hitPosition = tracking(vidobj,edgePosition); sample_rate_devider=0;endsample_rate_devider=sample_rate_devider+1;pastData = sampleAudio(pastData,ai,dataLengthConstant); % if we got a audio triggerif(playing ~=0) playing=playing-1;else if(testImpulse(pastData,threshHold)==1)playing = 5; soundType = getWhichSound(hitPosition,edgePosition);% makeSound(soundType); if (soundType==1)%play sound1 sound(sound1,Fs1);elseif (soundType==2) %play sound 2sound(sound2,Fs2); elseif (soundType==3)%play sound 3 sound(sound3,Fs3);else (soundType==4) %play sound 4sound(sound4,Fs4); endend endend

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
