Video Mapping Software: 3d Projection Mapping. I’ve been intrigued by the idea of 3d projection mapping/video mapping for the use in live shows in public outdoor spaces and in smaller venues as well.

Video Mapping Software: 3d Projection Mapping

It’s generally known for big outdoor venues and live shows: some of you may have seen Amon Tobin’s show ISAM. But these guys from France, Pierre Schneider and François Wunschel, created a 2 person show called “Euphorie” on a much smaller scale than Amon Tobin’s bewildering experience. Check out this clip of fluorescent light guitars: Two different projects, both different kind of shows, but I like that they’re both designed to tour and to be shown before a live audience. I was also able to find an interview with the creators of the show ‘Euphorie’, who are better known as the founders of the company 1024 architecture. From the Madmapper website: The MadMapper provides a simple and easy tool for mapping projections.

(See: linear perspective in Renaissance painting.) So, why not do that with projection mapping? Here’s the latest installment. 10 Best Software for Visual Performance Artist. 10 Best Software for Visual Performance Artist The task of selecting software for live audio-visual performances can become overwhelming, given the wide variety of solutions that are available.

As is true of choosing anything, you need to understand what you need. You then take a look at what is available. Once again as with most other products, there are features offered that you may not comprehend completely. Your selection depends on your own skills and experience in the profession too. List of free software for videomapping « videomapping workshop. RealFlow. Tandent Lightbrush: engineering an image. One of the more interesting new products shown at SIGGRAPH 2012 in LA was Tandent’s Lightbrush.

Tandent Lightbrush: engineering an image

This was first previewed at a prior SIGGRAPH but it was not yet a product that could be purchased. Lightbrush comes from computer vision research and allows artists to independently work and manipulate surface colors and shading separately in a still picture. The image is split for artist adjustment. While video applications have been demonstrated, for now the product is sold for stills only. There is talk of a video version late next year but no details or pricing for that version have been published. Original. Brightened shadow and edited reflectance. The company is not new, it has been doing computer vision research for some time. Texture map. Previous techniques might have tracked non-shadow areas in with perhaps optical flow, but Lightbrush does not work like that.

Shadow softened – changing the quality of light. Lightbrush has its sensible limits. Thanks so much for reading our article. Moore's law. Moore's law is the observation that, over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles approximately every two years.

Moore's law

The law is named after Intel co-founder Gordon E. Moore, who described the trend in his 1965 paper.[1][2][3] His prediction has proven to be accurate, in part because the law is now used in the semiconductor industry to guide long-term planning and to set targets for research and development.[4] The capabilities of many digital electronic devices are strongly linked to Moore's law: processing speed, memory capacity, sensors and even the number and size of pixels in digital cameras.[5] All of these are improving at roughly exponential rates as well. This exponential improvement has dramatically enhanced the impact of digital electronics in nearly every segment of the world economy.[6] Moore's law describes a driving force of technological and social change in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.[7][8] History[edit]

Japanese geek builds awesome giant beetle robot for some reason (video)

A Japanese man from Ibaraki Prefecture with too much time has built a gigantic bug mecha that not only looks awesome but also actually works. Takahashi-san is 60 and has begun building the thing in 1998 and now owns a fifteen ton robot. The monster is an impressive eleven meters long. The mecha, dubbed Kabutom RX-03, is equipped with a cool control panel, can be remote-controlled (which is especially awesome) and is shaped like a rhinoceros beetle. This is what I call a cool hobby project (Takahashi is an engineer, after all).

The Kabutom RX-03 was shown on Japanese TV last night. Via AltJapan. Sky & Atmosphere.
