Moving Emotions: How Neuroscience is Opening New Doors for Digital OOH.

Following the successful launch of Ocean’s third wave of Neuroscience research in November, attention has focused not only on the results which quantify for the industry further accountability for full motion imagery, but it also focuses on what incremental conversations it now facilities for brands – how can they optimise their screen media plans? How can full motion digital out of home bring with it a new dimension of thinking? How can full motion digital out of home be the segue to new waves of creative thinking?

Today sees the release of an article in Campaign which talks about the research from both the Ocean and the wider Neuroscience perspective.

Hear from Helen Haines, Ocean’s Head of marketing and events, and Heather Andrews, CEO Of Neuro-insight UK, on why full motion digital out of home sits at a unique point in the media ecosystem.

Winner World Masters of Projection Mapping 2018- STRIPES 5

- Florian and Michael Quistrebert

Synaesthesia is a kind of sense with which you see colors when you listen to music. In the twentieth century various artists (such as Wassily Kandinsky) translated this into genres called 'silent music' and 'color music'. Here, sound is translated into a form, while colour represents an emotion.

The duo uses this information in ‘STRIPES 5’ and allows people to experience the projections in two ways. From afar, the building appears to be distorted, and from close by one can see the markings of the building and the psychedelic patterns play a greater role.

Kega bv winner of the DiSiN Award 2017 in the Netherlands.

THE APPROACH / THE SOLUTION “If you unexpectedly have a product out of stock, you still want to help the customer with his request.” That’s been the reason of the ANWB to introduce this in-store kiosk. “With the kiosk, our endless aisle, we make the full online catalog available for our customers. In everything we do helping the customer is key. We do not have any claim, we are especially focused on helping the customer as much as possible. Let’s say helping +.” The distinctive yellow kiosk is slightly tilted so that it is readable for the user. Through the touch screen customers and employees are able to search the complete online product range. The kiosk has almost the same performance as the webshop on a PC, but the navigation especially works in terms of visual language and icons. Crucial to this approach is that the ordering kiosk is mainly used by the ANWB employee. The employee therefore supports the shopper who is looking for a product or service.

In the film Close Up, choreographer Alida Dors and film maker Manuel Rodrigues research the tension between accelerating and delaying movement and the power and vitality of stillness. How do you melt these two together?

The film encompasses eight different break-dancers in a modest black and white picture. The choreography is delayed, movement is dissected by time. Each body part is followed and displayed with motion tracking. Both the body’s and the movements determine the choice of imagery. What follows is a detailed and aesthetic display of dance.

EYE not only functions as a projection fa├žade, but its aesthetics contribute to the content which makes dance, architecture and film come together.

Apple's latest patent teases a Pencil that can draw in mid-air.

Apple's next Pencil could eschew the iPad Pro entirely. The Cupertino company has filed a patent for a stylus that can be used on any flat surface, and maybe even in the air, as spotted by Dutch site TechTastic. The patent title being "Content Creation Using Electronic Input Device on Non-electronic Surfaces" gives us a few ideas of how Apple might pitch this. Which is great considering how light on details the rest of the patent, filed last July and made public in January, is.

An external sensor (along the line of a Leap Motion) could track the stylus, or its movements could be recorded with onboard accelerometers and positioning sensors. There's also the chance for feedback via an LED light or a small screen on the device. And really that's about all we have to go on.

What's interesting is that one of the patent drawings shows off a bevy of devices with touch screens, including a first-gen iPod and a laptop, alongside an iPhone, iPad and a Watch. Apple might not end up releasing this -- a patent isn't a commitment to production -- but it does seem more compelling as a stylus versus just serving as an on-screen pen as it currently does.

E Ink display based systems deployed in Jerusalem Israel's bus stops.

Bus stop information display pioneer Papercast has deployed its solar-powered E Ink bus stop displays for the Jerusalem Transportation Master Plan Team (JTMT) passenger information system in Jerusalem, Israel. Papercast deployed these systems at several bus stops in Jerusalem as a pilot, with hopes to extend the deployment to all bus stops in Jerusalem. Papercast says that the E Ink displays are 36 times more efficient than previously-used LCD screens, which makes solar power feasible.

Recursive Infinity - Endless Procedural AV Show.

Audio-visual live performance where endless visuals and music both follow the theme of recursive infinity: a never-ending fractal train journey through procedural abstract worlds, cities and space. Sound and procedural 3d graphics are further connected by real-time audio-visual synchronisation and, although interminable, the show features 15 scenes and loops at 60 minutes. This is a teaser of the first 5 scenes.

Visuals made by evvvvil (DESiRE demoscene group & DVA coder group) in HLSL shader code, rendered in real-time in vvvv toolkit using own procedural raymarching library "Izpi Ibiltzen", controlled live with LaunchCONTROL XL controller. NO 3D MODELS, NO POST-PRODUCTION.

Interactive Restaurant Table Uses Portable Hologram Projector.

a hologram projection thingie touted as being part of the restaurant of the future. It’s interesting, and perhaps one day this sort of thing would get used somewhere, but there are a few things to reasonably note and ask:

- The video shows the waiter just plopping this puppy down on the table, and doesn’t show the bit with the guy crawling under the table (what if the women are wearing skirts?) plugging the thing into a wall or floor socket (that probably doesn’t exist).

- The thing uses a little pico projector and those things don’t tend to pump out a lot of lumens, so the real visuals are probably a lot less vivid and sharp (see this other video from the company, Hololamp).

- This is a one-to-one concept, which means a busy restaurant would need a bunch of units, and in theory a table for four would need several for ordering (where do they fit on the table and where’s the power coming from?), or one gets passed around, which would be amusing to watch with that power cable knocking over water glasses and other stuff.

- How many restaurants have the budget to pay for this sort of thing, and why would they? They can do razzle-dazzle digital stuff with iPads, which have batteries, dense pixels and serious color reproduction.

Restaurants have done interactive tables here and there, and it can be cool, but projections from overhead that a full table can see make more sense, and I think they need to have pretty amazing content, like this, to get beyond what would short-term wow factor. Cranky people like me would ask for the real menu.

Researcher use a micro-LED in a blood sugar level contact lens.

Researchers from Korea's Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) and Sungkyunkwan University contact lenses that has an ultra-sensitive blood glucose sensor that analyze tears.

To the wearer, the contact lens appear like regular ones, but when the sensor detects fluctuations in the blood glucose level, it lights up the chipset and an embedded micro-LED that stays lit if the blood glucose level is normal, so the wearer understand his blood levels. The contact lens are powered by wirelessly transmitted electricity.
