DeMonz - Interactive Installation for Kids.

Initi built an interactive projection playground, where you can throw balls at virtual characters.

Basically this system allows to make multitouch area on every flat surfaces. Technically it’s combination of motion-tracking and projection-mapping. Main benefits are that there are no limits in a scale of game-stage (it could be 1km long if you want) and no limit how many people can be involved in one moment.

Here is a video from our test installation in Prague. We developed kind of computer game but projected in real scenery. It is mainly dedicated to kids but also adults were involved as players. I have to say they really enjoyed it too! :)

The Demonz is a large-area virtual reality game projected in to reality. The goal is similarly as in the classic czech ball game from childhood “dodgeball“ but instead of hitting live opponents you will try to hit virtual targets in the shape of animated figures or other moving objects. Due to combination of art and programming work was created a unique game pushing you to move and cooperate with the others.

Project On Anything.

Lightform is the first computer made for projected augmented reality. Connect Lightform to any projector and instantly create magical experiences with light.

Think outside the screen. Lightform scans complex scenes in under a minute, letting you seamlessly mix real objects with projected light. It's augmented reality without the headset.

A wearable dehydration detector

Even professional athletes are terrible at staying hydrated. So BSX created the wrist-worn LVL, the first wearable to measure hydration in real time. Other wearables make surface measurements close to the skin, but LVL uses near-infrared light to peer beneath it and record changes in blood color, which are indicative of hydration levels. If the wearer is dehydrated, it alerts them with an on-screen message. Drink up! $199

Virtual Depictions: San Francisco

The 350 Mission video artwork, Virtual Depictions: San Francisco was commissioned by Kilroy and created by Refik Anadol, who is a media artist exploring the convergence of interactive media and architecture. Anadol is also an instructor and visiting scholar for the Design Media Arts Department at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). Anadol noted that the creation of Virtual Depictions is site specific and designed to conform to the space where it is exhibited. Thus the same digital exhibit could appear differently in different spaces.

The significance of Virtual Depictions is that it's not a static artwork or an abstract graphic or a slideshow of amazing fantastic realism landscapes. Virtual Depictions is a living, breathing data sculpture that as Anadol notes, "is driven by specific segments of information or data sets that are constantly transforming the displays images and creating what he describes as “data sculptures.”

The data that drives the sculptures come from the city's ambient surroundings including Environmental, Social Media and Post-Architectural influences." Anadol's data sculptures are defined by the use of parametric analytics which is a design process that creates a visual relationship between the data it is measuring and the visualization that represents the data.

These interactions that swirl around the city are captured by Virtual Depiction’s data engines and form a continuous data sculpture that presents its data visualizations as an art experience. People are so awed by its potential noted Anadol that they are visiting Virtual Depictions from all over the Bay Area to see and connect with its interpretative visualization of San Francisco's interactive communications.”

DeeDee Postil, Kilroy's art curator noted that because the content is in a real-time relationship with all the data that shapes its visualizations, it is always changing, and what viewers see as they watch Virtual Depictions may not be the same in their second visit to the display. Already it has earned the SEGD Global Design Award.

Amethys Technologies, a producer of holographic display systems has produced a UHD (Ultra High Definition) holographic showcase measuring 2-metres long (86-in) for the IDEX exhibition in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

IDEX is world biggest defence exhibition, and took place in late February. The show was the world premiere for the 4K hologram, which has a resolution of 3,840x2,160 pixels.

The display was created for Rheinmetall Defence, a German company specialising in products for military applications.

The display featured bespoke 3D content of Rheinmetall's products -floating' with the clear display. The contents shows the Oerlikon Fieldranger in action, it is a high precision stabilised 20mm remote controlled weapon station designed for mounting on armored personnel carriers or on special forces vehicles.

It took three months for Amethys to develop and produce the UHD holographic display and it took another two months for Amethys to create and develop the 4K holographic animation.

The solution belongs to Rheinmetall, and it will be using it at international fairs around the world, or in its Swiss shorrom during the rest of the year.

Bead screen depicts atomic life in glorious low resolution.

In an era where virtually flawless 8K screens are a reality, it's easy to forget that low-resolution displays have their own appeal -- a flickering tube TV can exhibit more character than most modern sets. And a team of artists and scientists (at France's Millimètre and Harvard University) are taking full advantage of that emotional pull. Their Life in Picoseconds exhibit uses an "Atom Screen" made of thousands of beads to depict a protein molecule in a purposefully low resolution. The project uses 70 software-guided fans to suspend beads between plastic panels, turning them into pixels when you shine light on them. The effect is fuzzy, jittery and tenuous, as if the energy and fragility of the atoms is reflected in the display itself.

Suffice it to say that this isn't really a general-purpose display. And if you want to see it in person, you'll have to visit Le Laboratoire in Cambridge, Massachusetts no later than June 10th. Even so, it's a good example of how purposefully crude technology can be more engaging than the latest and greatest hardware.

California billboards promote tourism by showing the landscape behind the ads.

An artist is sprucing up California billboards by having them align with the local landscape if viewed from the right perspective.

The installations, spotted by Adweek, were created to draw attention away from advertisements to the wider world, all part of a project called ‘Desert X’.

The unique outdoor advertising drive has touched down in several places in California is promoted thusly on the dedicated website: “In a cinematic experience animated by driving along Gene Autry Trail, viewers will encounter a series of billboards featuring photographs of the very mountains towards which they are heading.

“In the language of billboard advertising this kind of reading is referred to as a Burma-Shave after the shaving cream company of the same name who used sequential placement to create messaging that could be read only from a moving vehicle.

“Within the desert empire of roadside signs, Bolande chooses to advertise the very thing so often overlooked. Looking up at the billboards our attention is drawn back to the landscape itself.”

The group is dedicated the displaying the beauty of the desert and has held several unique exhibitions doing so in the region. Check out more work from the group on their Facebook page.

Please join us for guided tours of Desert X installations, every weekend until April 30, 2017.

“Invisible” Walkway Scares Shoppers to Attention.

The Installation of the Week is a true testament to the power of immersion and how the five senses can be complicit in simulated reality. Multinational digital content agency Mindconsole recently went to work on building a walkway at Macquarie Shopping Centre in Sydney, Australia that goes from an opaque surface to appearing to collapse under the weight of passersby.

This “invisible” walkway used a 4K OLED screen, motion sensors and various sound effects to very briefly make consumers feel as if they are going to plummet to their doom before dissolving into an advertisement for Rexona’s Invisible Dry range. Yes, this is an elaborate campaign for antiperspirant deodorant of all things. More specifically, it’s pushing Rexona Men Invisible Dry Fresh on the Australian Market after wild success with streak-less, stainless odor protection in the U.K. As the video below illustrates, this playful stunt as well as the candid reactions of unsuspecting participants were all caught by 10 on-site cameras to be used for subsequent content roll-out.

According to John McKeon, marketing manager for Rexona, this “Believe in the Invisible” installation campaign is the first part of a series that will show how the product protects consumers from marks, stains, sweat, etc. As part of the campaign, Rexona has also released two 15-second global TV spots that feature a man and a woman going about everyday life by travelling or walking on invisible objects.

Hull, City of UK Culture, 2017

Hull UK City of Culture 2017 kicked off on 1 January with Made in Hull – a seven day event that told the story of the city and its people over almost a century, brought to life with projection mapping across buildings and other sites around the city centre.

Bluman Associates provided the technical production and projection mapping expertise to tell the story of Hull and its important contribution to UK culture. Made in Hull took place over seven evenings and attracted over 340,000 people.

The large-scale project included five sites throughout the city, including Queen Victoria Square and the Aquarium, The Deep. Bluman Associates collaborated with Ground Control and Hull 2017 throughout the feasibility and tender process. Working closely with the production and creative teams, an international team of 20 projectionists provided the technical expertise to project the content over the cities most iconic buildings.

d3 Solution

As well as being chosen to operate the project, d3 media servers were also critical to the projects workflow for pre-visualisation and 3D modelling. Importing 3D models of the larger sites allowed the content to be flawlessly mapped over Queen Victoria Square – which was projected over three buildings – and The Deep, which is over 95 metres long.

Integrating the production infrastructure into the outdoor sites was a challenge, with the sites being open to the public, the structures needed to be as discrete as possible to house and position up to 30 projectors.

‘Utilising the pre-vis functionality of d3 has been invaluable for our collaboration with the creative team’ states Pod Bluman of Bluman Associates. ‘Importing the 3D model of Queen Victoria Square allowed us to illustrate to the artists and producer exactly how the creative content was going to look’.

Canadian companies win Digi Awards.

The winners of the 2017 Digi Awards were recently announced, including two representatives of the Canadian digital signage industry. The annual awards recognize resellers, integrators and service providers. Montreal-based Telecine Multimedia won the best ambient content award for a holiday event project, which involved synchronizing and projecting images based on its employees’ movements on 14 windows of its offices at night.

Outdoor digital sign built to stay warm in Barrie - Canada.

Audiovisual (AV) technology integrator Advanced, based in Mississauga, Ontario, has designed and installed an outdoor digital display with a custom-built heat-regulating enclosure for Park Place, a shopping centre in Barrie.

The project comprises a 2 x 2 matrix of 1.4-m (55-in.) DynaScan liquid crystal displays (LCDs) with 3,000-nit brightness and a 3.5-mm (0.14-in.) bezel. For the weatherproof and tamperproof enclosure, Advaned worked with Batko in Portneuf, Que., to ensure an optimal temperature could be maintained within.

“This was a way to bring a high-resolution indoor display to a challenging outdoor environment without breaking the bank,” says David Weatherhead, president of Advanced. A Crestron control system allows Park Place employees to update content remotely from a touch screen. In addition to ad space sold to the mall’s retailers, the screen broadcasts live sporting events.
