For this to be really successful, Microsoft needs to launch Surface commercially. Until then, it’s a sweet piece of technology.

Link was created for the event as an interpretation of ‘Convergence’, the theme of the exhibition. The team presented a convergence of complex, fast moving technologies with low, everyday materials. Furthermore, the audience is invited to take part and “can store their memories inside boxes”.
From CreativeApplications.net, it’s nice to see a projection mapping project that marries the execution with an idea instead of simply projecting animation on buildings.
Six-Forty by Four-Eighty is an interactive lighting installation composed of an array of magnetic, physical pixels. Individually, pixel-tiles change their color in response to touch and communicate their state to each other by using a person’s body as the conduit for information. When grouped together, the pixel-tiles create patterns and animations that can serve as a tool for customizing our physical spaces. By transposing the pixel from the confines of the screen and into the physical world, focus is drawn to the materiality of computation and new forms for design emerge.

The installation is constituted of a suspended and articulated topography of 4 x 2 m, subdivided into forty triangular mirrors. Twelve triangles are fitted with motors and eight triangles are equipped with audio transducers, which transform the surface into a dynamic sonic space. A dialogue between space and sound is created as the surface slowly modifies its shape, our perception of it altered through continuously changing light and sound reflection.
It’s only been a week since the release of Microsoft’s Kinect, and hackers online has already manage to hack it to work for the PC and MAC. So far here’s the coolest technical demo for the use of kinect, as of this week.
Essentially the “photographic” video stream was mapped onto the “depth” video stream, creating a live rendered 3D Video Effect with a USD$150 off the shelf depth-aware camera.
Breathtaking … maybe the best projection mapping yet.
