Animating Keyboard smudges (a discovery project)

A learning project, created simply to explore some of the import, exports and control structures of the “Processing” coding language.

Here is the task:

  • Draw a keyboard from co-ordinates data in a CSV file
  • Take input to be typed from a text file
  • Highlight and smudge the key in an animated way by overlaying a semi-random “smudge” shape
  • Display the text as scrolling lines as it is typed – as if replicating a monitor.
  • As letters are typed, make typewriter sounds through the Processing “mimim” library
