Bamzooki Jason Garbett, Rupert Harris (BBC) 2010 television, 'Free-D' marker recognition, video, marker, generative animation, sound, multi-user, small field of view, game show, linear narrative, on any television, television, game, show, entertainment
Children's entertainment show in which teams of kids design creatures called zooks which are put to the test against each other. The BBC’s Virtual Studiotechnology was used to enable realtime composition of the 3D rendered graphics with live camera feeds. Each studio camera has a dedicated render PC to render the virtual scene from that camera’s perspective. To know what a studio camera’s perspective is, each camera is fitted with a second ‘Free-D’ camera which points towards the ceiling. On the ceiling are reflective, circular bar codes. The 3-D camera data is fed to a computer system that identifies the targets on the ceiling and calculates that camera’s position and orientation, 50 times a second.
Body Paint Mehmet Akten 2009 spacial projection, motion tracking, bodies, generative animation, multi-user, large field of view, human live performance, interaction with public, live, generative, non-linear narrative, any stage, live, dance, motion tracking, real-time
“Body Paint” by Mehmet Akten is an interactive installation and performance allowing users to paint on a virtual canvas with their body, interpreting gestures and dance into evolving compositions. The installation is designed to work with any number of people and is scalable to cover small or large areas. The interaction is very simple - movement creates paint. Hidden in the simplicity, are many layers of subtle details. Different aspects of the motion - size, speed, acceleration, curvature, distance all have an effect on the outcome - strokes, splashes, drips, spirals - and is left up to the users to play and discover.

Curious Displays functions simultaneously as a form of design research and as a proposal for a new product, a future display technology. The project explores our relationship with devices and technology by examining the multi-dimensionality of communication and the complexity of social behavior and interaction. In its essence, the project functions as a piece of design fiction, considering the fluctuating nature of our present engagement with media technology and providing futurist imaginings of other ways of being.
Exercise in Immersion 4 Marnix de Nijs (V2_) 2007 head-mounted display, sensors, microphone, video, sound, video, generative abstract animation, sound, single-user, 360 choice of perspective, large field of view, reactive to head position, game with unknown goal, unconscious choices about narrative, indoors, anywhere, long setup, game, art-game, Deaf 07, crash suit
The headset is equipped with a sensor system that can couple the exact position of the user in reality with previously designed imagery. On the display built into the headset, a combination between the real world and the virtual-constructed world becomes visible.The virtual world corresponds with the existing environment through a number of clearly marked reference points, such as walls, pillars and doors. Without movement, the player remains in reality and there is no possibility to take part in the game. Movement and game progression results in the manipulation of the existing space that in the long run will transform into a virtual environment. In the most extreme case, the representation of the existing space will be completely replaced with a new and unknown world.

Livingroom2 Jan Torpus, Roderick Galantay, Bennet Uk (Swiss National Science Foundation,, iart) 2007 headmounted display, tracking sensors, videofeed, animation, single-user, 360 large field of view, reactive to head position, interactive non-linear narrative, anywhere indoors, long setup, science-fiction, design, decoration
The room is approached as an illusionary space, a simulation of a possible future experience of daily life instead of a tool for content development. In ‘living-room2’ the space itself becomes the object of transformation. In the virtual layer, the room can be visually transformed, reconstructed, extended, etc. Thus, the user becomes part of an immersive environment. By giving the visitor the possibility to “change the space”, living-room2 offers new opportunities for applications in the fields of Architecture, Scenography, Tourism, Museology and Education.

N Building Teradadesign+Qosmo 2009 handheld display, phone, graphic image recognition, marker facade, twitter feed, animation, multi-user, 180 small field of view, reactive to hand position, non-linear real-time metadata, space-specific, informational, see trough, building, twitter
N Building is a commercial structure located near Tachikawa station amidst a shopping district. Being a commercial building signs or billboards are typically attached to its facade which we feel undermines the structures' identity. As a solution we thought to use a QR Code as the facade itself. By reading the QR Code with your mobile device you will be taken to a site which includes up to date shop information. In this manner we envision a cityscape unhindered by ubiquitous signage and also an improvement to the quality and accuracy of the information itself.
Nuits Sonores Yannick Jacquet, Joanie Lemercier, Olivier Ratsi, Romain Tardy (AntiVJ) 2009 Spacial Projection, video mapping, sculpture, animation, sound, multi-user, 180 large field of view, linear narrative, space-specific, Nuits Sonores festival, live performance, club, VJ, projection mapping
We've been asked to do the stage design for one room of the festival, so we combined ideas discovered in previous projects (Light sculptures and light painting) to do a minimal and geometric setup.This was the perfect opportunity to test the latest version of our mapping software in live condition, and it worked really well: it only took a few minutes to map the 3D dj booth, and then many visuals and loops were already ready to play, when it usually took a couple of hours to produce basic animations.Here are a few pictures and videos found on internet, and we'll do a video report shortly, with more visuals and details about the project.
