Depth Sensor Shootout. (Updated Dec 23 2016) Stimulant’s mission is to create “smart spaces” which engage visitors in ways that can’t be duplicated with devices they have in their home or their pocket.

Depth Sensor Shootout

We achieve this through a variety of sensors and cameras feeding data into custom software, running on bespoke computing hardware, and outputting to any number of display or projection devices. Because it all begins with the sensing technologies, we spend plenty of time evaluating various products that help us determine how people move through a space. Depth-sensing cameras are a great way to do that, and here we present a comparison of the cameras we’ve been able to get into our lab.

In this article we’ll give brief descriptions of ten different cameras, and end with a comparison of their hardware specifications. We won’t end up with a recommendation for “best camera”, because different devices are suited to different applications. 4.

Istanbul-based designers and animators Ouchhh have created a projection-mapped homage to the landscapes of New Mexico, abstracting the dusty hills, canyons, and mountainous scenery into swaths of black and white geometric shapes that rush over the viewer.

Desert Topography Gets Warped into a Spiraling Audiovisual Experience

The piece, called H OM E OMOR PH ISM, is an immersive audiovisual performance mapped against the curved surface of The Digital Dome at the Institute of American Indian Arts in New Mexico. "Our goal is to re-define New Mexico’s topographic map by projecting abstract visual representations on primitive objects," explains Ouchhh. "The primitive geometric 'cube (in two cubic towers at the top of Visual Arts Center Building), dome (Digital Dome at the Institute of American Indian Arts) and prism (an installation that will be in Centre of Contemporary Art)' will involve a complex morphological and geometrical representation of the information contained in natural images. " The Perfect Beginners Projection Mapping Projectors - Projection Mapping Central. We are often asked, “What projector should I buy to start projection mapping / video mapping.” In reality projection mapping can work with any projector, it just depends how bright you want the image and how much money you have in your pocket.

So, a great way to start is to simply buy a projector, any projector, and start mapping. Here at PMC we’ve used a variety of projectors for our research, and we have some recommendations which we will start sharing weekly. For beginners just starting out with projection mapping, we recommend a ‘short-throw’ projector. Guide to Projectors for Interactive Installations / by @laserpilot.
