OpenToko.org is a knowledge sharing community, set up around a series of open workshops in the field of art and technology. For each OpenToko workshop a topic is set and speakers are invited to share their knowledge and experience in that field. The cost of each workshop is up to you. You can choose how much the obtained knowledge is worth to you.
The next OpenToko workshop will be about Webshops, how to create your own shopping cart on your website using ZenCart. The workshop will probably take place on Sunday, January 29th. If you’re interested or knowledgable about this topic please email us at email@example.com.

Learn how to use Microsoft’s Kinect 3D camera in open source environments like openFrameworks and Processing.
The first part of the workshop will get you started using the Kinect for your own purposes. The second part will focus on the use of the Kinect inside openFrameworks together with OpenNI. We will focus on implementing hand and finger recognition in combination with basic vector math inside openFrameworks, for generating meaningful parameters which can be used for any system to be controlled with the Kinect. Please bring your own Kinect camera.
