So I got a new toy from work, a sport tracker sensor thingie you attach to yourself. I hooked it up to my computer and started recording the gyroscope, accelerometer and other sensor data. My idea was to try to recreate and visualise the same movemenet as the sensor did on a threejs canvas.

That turned out to be quite difficult since the sensor was rotating on all axes and it was hard to determing whats up and whats down on a specific time. This movement was basically just me rotating my arm.

Anyway I liked how these turned out so I thought I’d share some visualisations of the data.

Can you guess what sport that was?…it was breakdance.

Even thought the end results wasn’t what I aimed out to do, I still feel this type of art generation was super interesting. Combining generative art and body movement.
