One of seeper’s goals is finding new and innovative ways for us to interact with technology, art and the world around us. We believe that our technology should be instinctive, natural additions to our lives: there to enrich, simplify and harmonise. The Geosphere is a new outlet for this quest. Created for the PufferSphere - a multitouch, spherical screen developed in collaboration with Pufferfish - this interactive display allows users to navigate the globe and explore the internet in a 3D space.
The 52nd floor of Mori Arts Center Gallery was the location of the latest BMW Art Car Exhibition, ‘Transparent Speed’, and for architect Jun Aoki who designed it the sky was the limit. ‘It's a very fine idea to have cars floating high up in the sky’, said Aoki, thrilled to see his exhibition design of cars in clouds become a reality. Roppongi Hills Mori Tower wrapped in a layer of mist on cloudy days wasn’t enough.

Where are you? An immersive existence simulator and telepresence apparatus In the featured work Where are you? visitors are invited to fly, as in dreams, through a world of many dimensions, between past and future, light and darkness, the public and private. The immersed visitors use a joystick to move in the X, Y and Z axis of an information/experience space where scale matters. At scale 0, the world looks like a simple XYZ grid defining the experience of the navigable space. At scale +1, the world turns into an archive of pictures, sounds, texts and objects (the author’s).
Each time there is a new way to capture media, especially when that means is inexpensive, the world goes nuts trying to see how they can show off their life and times with it. That’s what’s about to happen with this ball camera, the Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera, that is, a project that’s currently Patent Pending and has been in the works, apparently, since back in 2010. The project has progressed to the point here in late 2011 where the designers feel it strong enough to present to the public – just toss it up in the air and at it’s peak – SNAP – you’ve got a complete 360 degree view of the environment the ball is in.
