How To Import Objects into OmniSense:
On another device (phone, computer, etc), open this website.
Open the OmniSense App and tap "Object Library".
Tap the QR Code icon in the upper left hand corner (to the right of the words "Object Library")
If the Camera Permission pop-up comes up, please allow access to the camera.
On your other device page, scroll down to the Object you are importing codes for, and hold your phone up so the QR Code below (the icon with the dots and OmniSense logo in the middle) is visible in your camera display.
Once the QR Code is scanned, it will confirm the objects being imported. Press OK to import the objects.
Now, you can enter performance mode and, when one of these objects are scanned, it will show the information or play the sound/save the image/etc associated with that object.
If you are looking to customize the objects further, you can do so in the Object Library, or you can scan the individual objects in the "Setup Objects" dialogue.
For objects that include vibration codes for each card, the vibration is coded in a set of 4 vibrations. In each set of vibrations, one or more of the 4 vibrations will be longer than the others. This long vibration determines the number or value of the object.
For value, the 4 vibrations (in order) are the values:
1 - 2 - 4 - 8
So, whichever place has a longer vibration, those places should be added together. So, if the vibration is "long, long, short, short", this means that 1 and 2 should be added together to make 3. For playing cards, values that are 11 (long, long, short, long) represents the Jack, 12 (short, short, long, long) represents the Queen, and 13 (long, short, long, long) represents the King.
For Cards, there is 2 sets of 4 vibrations separated by a pause. The second set is for the suit code. The vibrations are coded as follows:
Clubs, Hearts, Spades, Diamonds (CHaSeD)
This is more straightforward. Whichever vibration in the sequence is longer, this is the vibration that represents the scanned card.
Try this a couple of times with your deck and see if you can identify the cards via vibration.
BASIC DECK SETUP
Name - Includes short name of every playing card. If you'd like to customize the names, be sure to scan each card and link via Setup Objects.
Group - "Cards"
Vibrate - None
Photo - Basic Card Images
Audio - None
URL - None
Performance - This setup is for customizing your own objects, and quickly importing all the card objects needed so you can add your own images, sounds, and url's to each one.
Effect - You show the last photo in your camera roll to be a picture of a bunch of starts in a galaxy, and offer to airdrop it to your spectator. You lock your phone and then bring out a bag of medallions, each with a zodiac sign. The spectator is told to leave one in the bag and hide the others. The magician then opens up his phone and opens the photo, and the stars in the photo start to shift and morph, forming the star sign selected.
Setup - First, choose one of the two qr codes to scan and import those objects. The "fast" qr code is for animations that happen almost instantaneously, and the slow is a slow, gradual morph to the star sign image. Once started, this will take several minutes, so please be patient while the objects import. The faster your wifi connection is, the faster this process will go.
Once the objects are imported, grab your Zodiac Discs, as well as an additional OmniSense object (a label or sticker is perfect for this). In the "Setup Objects" section, scan your sticker, and choose "Connect to Object", then connect it to the "Start Still" object in the Zodiac Reveals library.
In the settings, make sure "Save Photo to Camera Roll" is on and "Open Photos After Scan" is on. Open Performance Mode and scan the "Start Still" tag. You should now see the star field image as the most recent image in your photo library. Now, return back to OmniSense and enable "Replace Photo" in settings. Be sure not to add any new photos to your phone, the image of the stars should be the most recent photo. Open the Performance Mode in OmniSense and disable the scanner, then open your photos app.
Performance - Open the photos app and show your spectator the image of stars. Be sure to show it at least 10 seconds, so that way they know it is a still. You can even email it or airdrop it to them as proof. Tell them you're going to set your phone down, and as you do switch to OmniSense and put the phone screen side down.
Bring out the bag of zodiac symbols and ask your spectator to remove all of them but one, then hand you the bag. As you hold the bag, shake the bag to try and get the disc to sit parallel to the table/floor your phone is on. Once you do, hover the bag 2-3" away from the top of your phone. OmniSense will read the tag and prompt you to delete the last photo from your camera roll. BE SURE TO TEST THIS BEFORE PERFORMING, so you know what this dialogue window looks like.
Now, as you pick up your phone and tap "delete", lock it, then unlock it and the photos app should be in front. Open the image of the stars and look closely at the top left corner. As soon as you see it brighten slightly, wave your hand over the phone and the animation will happen. The corner will brighten each time an animation is about to occur, so if you wave when the image brightens you will be synced to the video.
After you're done, pick up the phone and hold it toward you, but swipe on the bottom of the screen to switch back to OmniSense. Once in OmniSense, scan the "Start Still" tag. This will delete the animated image and replace it with the original still. You are now reset, and can show this image to your spectators and it will not animate.
