Conductive Ink + Projection Mapping = Magic Storytelling As part of their presence at the inaugural Retail Design Expo, Dalziel and Pow created a space to stand out from the crowd, a conversation starter: experimental, innovative, playful, integrated, exploratory and, to many visitors, surprising. The idea came from the work they created for Portuguese childrenswear brand Zippy, magnified as a prototype to test ideas and push the range of interactions and feedback. Screen-printed illustrations spring to life when touched, as conductive ink triggers a host of playful digital animations – a mix of informative and charming content, from product information to brand stories to chasing ducks. Pushing the boundaries of storytelling within a space, making it fun and engaging, putting ideas before hardware. A total of 48 interactions and over 100 unique animations make up the broad spectrum of content on the stand, from simple sound toys to more complex exchanges that layer projection mapping and movement around a physical space.
VPT 7 | Conversations with spaces VPT 8 by HC Gilje, released may 2018. Video Projection Tool (VPT) is a free multipurpose realtime projection software tool for Mac and Windows. VPT 7 was downloaded over 100000 times, so in spite of a lot of other options available VPT still is popular. Among other things it can be used for projecting mapping on complex forms, adapt a projection to a particular space/surface, combine recorded and live footage, for multiscreen HD playback, for interactive installations using arduino sensors or camera tracking ++. VPT 8 is recommended for mac OS 10.12 or later and Windows 7 and 10 (although VPT 7 works great on Windows 7). and yes, it is still FREE! VPT 8 has a lot of under-the-hood changes. System Requirements Mac An Intel® Mac with Mac OS X 10.7 (or later). Windows PC with Windows 7 (or later); Multicore processor; 2 GB RAM; 1024×768 display, an OpenGL-compatible graphics card, and OpenGL 1.4 (or later) VPT 8 online manual Download VPT 8 windows VPT 8 mac extras: VPT 8 Videotrigger windows
¿ Qué es el Video mapping ? (sorpréndete) | BaiTIC Soluciones S.L. La aplicación de las nuevas tecnologías a la expresión artística produce en ocasiones resultados soprendentes. Ese es el caso del video mapping. El video mapping es una técnica consistente en proyectar imágenes sobre superficies reales, generalmente inanimadas, para conseguir efectos de movimiento ó 3D dando lugar a un espectáculo artístico fuera de lo común. La práctica más habitual en las técnicas de video mapping es proyectar las imágenes sobre edificios, acompañando los efectos visuales con efectos sonoros que aporten mayor espectacularidad a al espectáculo. Uno de los trabajos de video mapping que más nos ha sorprendido es “Battle of Branchage” de la empresa Seeper. Seeper produce efectos visuales destinados a otros campos, no solo al arte, como son: “Multitouch Sequencer & Sphere“, “Multitouch interactive book“, … y efectos visuales para películas como “Watchmen“.Podeis ver las presentaciones correspondientes en su página web.
Light Leaks - Filling a room with projected light / by @kcimc + @halfdanj Created by Kyle McDonald and Jonas Jongejan for the CLICK Festival 2013 in Elsinore, Denmark, Light Leaks is a light installation comprised of fifty mirror balls projecting controlled light in the room. The general idea was to make use of found objects, in this case mirror balls, which as Kyle explains to CAN have a fairly chaotic structure compared to the perfect grid of a projected image we are accustomed to. Having been influenced by Kyle’s work with Joanie Lemercier at ScreenLab in Manchester last year , where he learned how important peripheral vision can be in creating an immersive experience, Light Leaks is an attempt to fill a room with projected light in a way that can’t be achieved with projectors alone. The pile of fifty balls sites in the centre of the room that has three projectors pointed at them. Optically, this is much related to Kyle’s work with Elliot Woods earlier this year, ExR3 .

VIDEO MAPPING 3D MirrorFugue - Music collaboration across space and time / by @xiaosquared @medialab MirrorFugue is a Ph.D. research project by Xiao Xiao at the MIT Media Lab, exploring communicating gesture in music collaboration across space and time. The project is comprised of a set of interfaces for piano to visualise the gesture of a performance. Based on the idea that the visibility of gesture contributes to learning and synchronisation, MirrorFugue displays the hand and body movements of piano playing using metaphors from the physical world to connect musicians from disparate spaces and times – and you can even play with yourself from the past. We designed two modes to visualize the hand gesture of a performance, which we term “Reflection” and “Organ”. MirrorFugue can be used in remote lessons to enable teachers and students to see each other’s playing. The current prototype consists of MIDI keyboards, wide-angle cameras, projectors, using the MaxMSP/Jitter to manage video and sound. Take a moment to learn more about the project by watching Xiao’s talk from TEDxBoston (below).
Le Petit Chef: PM on your Dinner Plate Projection mapping could be coming to a restaurant near you! It’s always a treat to see designers go that extra mile to create beautiful projection mapping content and this piece is no exception. Filip Sterckx and Antoon Verbeek over at SkullMapping put on a wonderful show for their dinner guests. Hit the jump to see the mini-chef in action. As you sit down, preparing to gobble down your meal, a mini chef arrives at your plate ready to serve! For this project, we experimented with projection onto a dinner table. The chef then picks up all the ingredients, even going as far as cutting down a broccoli tree to make sure guests get the very best: This isn’t the first time we’ve seen projection mapping on a restaurant table. Truly magical!
Blog - Projectile Objects (infrequently updated) It’s been a while since I have been able to post some of my projection mapping adventures, but this one with Lazercrunk was fun. You don’t have to be local to appreciate an 8′ tall projection mapped city skyline. 10 buildings, spanning 16′ wide by 8′ high across the stage. Here’s an example of what it looked like by itself. So for all of you who are interested in Projection Mapping, I’m detailing a little bit of my workflow in this post. Essentially you start with an idea. Make a cut out a Vector cutout for each building and separate them by layers. Now we could leave the buildings connected for the next step, but part of this project was to rearrange the buildings on site to get the desired look within the projectors throw dimensions. From here I can control each layer and customize my content as I see fit. Now the building out: Todd any I have been working together for quite some time and we have learned a lot from one another. Then the setup: Now it’s time to map.
