MelodicBrush is a novel system that connects two ancient art forms: Chinese ink-brush calligraphy and Chinese music. Our system uses vision-based techniques to create a digitized ink-brush calligraphic writing surface with enhanced interaction functionalities. The music generation combines cross-modal stroke-note mapping and statistical language modeling(More)
MelodicBrush is a novel cross-modal musical system that connects two ancient art forms: Chinese ink-brush calligraphy and Chinese music. Our system endows the process of calligraphy writing with a novel auditory representation in a natural and intuitive manner to create a novel artistic experience. The writing effect is simulated as though the user were(More)
We present <i>i*Chameleon</i>, a configurable and extensible multimodal platform for developing highly interactive applications. The platform leverages a principled and comprehensive development cycle to systematically capture the multimodal interaction artifact. Importantly, by introducing MVC architectural pattern, it enforces the concept of(More)
This paper presents KID, an interactive app on a smart device, designed to facilitate and encourage young children to learn and practice Chinese characters. It relies on pen dynamics to extract the strokes and map the written character to the proper one. The stroke orientation is also analyzed for ordering and spatial alignment features that pinpoint common(More)
CalliMusic, is a system developed for users to generate traditional Chinese music by writing Chinese ink brush calligraphy, turning the long-believed strong linkage between the two art forms with rich histories into reality. In addition to traditional calligraphy writing instruments (brush, ink and paper), a camera is the only addition needed to convert the(More)
