Message from Ian


I am a Ruby programmer from Portland, OR, USA, and just arrived in Kobe, Japan. I think I'll be in Kobe until the 23rd.

I'm working on open source live motion graphics software written in Ruby.

What is Luz?

According to README, Luz takes input from wiimotes, Wacom tablets and so on, and generates interactive motion graphics.

Video and screenshots are here:
