How was MAX used?
MAX was the only programming environment used to build the stand alone application that synthesize and process all sounds and visuals. The data sent wirelessly from the racquets, using xbee radios, is read also by the application using the serial object. The application also operates branding tasks on photos acquired in real time by tethering shooting process. Finally all DMX messages are calculated and sent from this MAX programmed application.
