Mozart

By Mozart

Screencast
Quick Intro

Be a fantastic music conductor to control the tempo of music playing in your PC with your smart phone.

Description

Let normal people express their feeling with music. You could wave your hands to control the tempo of music to achieve it. What we do is let you control the music like a conductor very easily. But if you let music play more fast, the more score you get.

Judging Instructions

Please have one smart phone(Android/iPhone) and one desktop/laptop PC(Mac) to play the Mozart project. And go to http://mozart.2013.nodeknockout.com/ with your PC. Then connect the PC with smart phone(see how to do that in the video). Hold the smart phone and wave the hand to play and feel it.

Suggest to use Firefox in your PC and Firefox For Android in your smart phone to get the best experience. And of cause, you could also use others, but sorry, not IE.

What they Used

We use the following libraries in the Mozart project. For server side, node.js, many npm modules: ws , express, hashids, node-uuid. For client side, MIDI.js, Bootstrap.

    Cool and interesting idea, and fun when you figure out how it works. But onboarding/joining could be more seamless, and figuring out how to play is kind of confusing.

    This app is crazy, but crazy in a fun way.

    Cool idea but it didnt work for me, or anyone else in the judging room today.

    Couldn't get it to work. Cool idea and great video though

    Cool idea - was excited to try it. Could not get it to actually work (no sound) and kept quitting.

    Getting my phone to talk to the app worked well and the idea is interesting, but I wasn't able to get the tempo to change no matter how much I shook! Still, good work getting so much in so little time.

    Definitely a cool game to play! Good job!

    A very creative use of phone sensors!

    Interesting, but not that useful. It also didn't work well with Chrome for Android.

    Would have been nice if the phone was used to keep a consistent tempo (and score was based on that as opposed to speed). Make you feel like a real conductor :-)

    QR codes are painful. It would have been better to just have a tinyurl that I could type in. More time could have been invested in the gaming components as opposed to QR code implementations.

    Really fun idea. In the end it doesn't seem very practical but a cool exploration of these apis.

    The design could use some help.

    Original and fun idea that I've never seen before. I love how easy it is to use the accelerometer on a mobile device through a web interface with another client, very slick. Areas to improve would be making it clearer just how exactly you score high, since there seems to be a slight latency it's tricky to understand how my actions correspond to good or bad results without any other info. Design is okay for what it is, could be better.

    Great use of QR codes linking mobile devices to desktop via web technologies. I also liked the multiplayer ability, very clever!

    Main components are there, but the human element is missing. How do I shake? Am I doing ok? Why is this slowing down? What are the graphs?

    Great potential and I love QR codes to go from screen to mobile. But the app seems almost useful, but not quite. Also, lots of messages in the browser consoles.

    Very creative idea. I'm not sure how useful score is on this type of thing, but I would suggest if you keep it you should get it to curve where top score is actual time instead of just as fast as you can go.

    This is the wackiest entry I have judged so far, but it's very cool.

    Super idea, very hard to get it working, but I really like it.

    Nice! It would be cool if the score wasn't just based on speed, though.

    This app has a lot of potential! I can image people uploading their own music and eventually selling it through this site.

    novel idea. would be cool if I could actually learn something about conducting music, like moving my phone in the way I should move a wand and the closer I get to the "right" way, I get more points.

    AWESOME!!

    Cool idea. Didn't really work in the deploy servers, my guess is it's just too much data. I even downloaded Firefox for Android and it wasn't really functional.
