Using my face to control a pan/tilt mirror.

faceOSC, MaxMSP, maxuino, two servos, a teensy 2.0 running standard firmata, and a shard of glass combine to make a system of directing laser beams using your head.
Maxuino is useful for MAX to Arduino communication. It is developed by CMU art professor Ali Momeni.
I used MAX because it is really easy to smooth and visualize data. This project took very little time.
Maxuino actually expects OSC formatted messages, meaning that my patch is simply translating OSC to OSC and then to Firmata.
