Lava Centre

Located just 100 km east of Reykjavík at Hvolsvöllur, the new Lava Centre sits between five of Iceland's greatest volcanos. The main exhibition of the Centre reveals the epic forces of nature that shape our planet and created Iceland. In addition visitors get a crash-course in Volcanology while experiencing the extreme forces associated with volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.

Interactive Illumination Jacques Cartier Bridge

From Moment Factory

2017, Moment Factory and six local partners fulfilled a long-held dream of lighting up the Jacques Cartier Bridge--an architectural jewel and iconic Montreal landmark. Directed by Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated, collaborators shared one common goal: to give Montreal a new visual postcard and a showcase for the city’s creative and technological vanguard. The collaboration would result in the world’s most-connected bridge, an interactive illumination activated by real-time social media activity and big urban data.

At nightfall, the bridge comes to life, expressing the team’s Living Connections concept in two ways. First: the bridge’s interior volume reflects the city’s changing seasons with an ambient colour for each of the 365 days, while the bridge’s exterior is animated by light particles driven by real-time social media that tags Montreal. These particles are influenced by data pulled from the day’s weather, traffic, news and mood. The bridge, now as impressive at night as during the day, is a unifying symbol of the city. The project broadcasts Montreal’s creative expertise to a world seeking solutions that elegantly unite smart-city infrastructure with artistry and design. A project directed by Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated. A concept by Moment Factory. In collaboration with Ambiances Design Productions, ATOMIC3, Éclairage Public / Ombrages, Lucion Média, Réalisations and UDO Design.

Luciola : A Millimeter-Scale Light-Emitting Particle Moving in Mid-Air.

Japanese engineering researchers say they have created a tiny electronic light the size of a firefly which rides waves of ultrasound, and could eventually figure in applications ranging from moving displays to projection mapping.

We present an approach to realize the levitation of a small object with an embedded electronic circuit. Luciola is a light-emitting particle with a diameter of 3.5mm and a weight of 16.2mg moving in mid-air in a 10.4cm x 10.4cm x 5.4cm space through acoustic levitation using two 40-kHz 17 x 17 ultrasonic transducer arrays placed face-to-face at a distance of 20cm and wirelessly powered by 12.3-MHz resonant inductive coupling. The novelty of this paper is the acoustically levitated electronic object by the combined application of ultrasonic levitation and wireless powering to the levitated electronic object. A new shape of the levitated object and a new placement of the receiver coil to simultaneously realize acoustic levitation and wireless powering are proposed, achieving a stable wireless powering to a rotating levitated object at the bottom of an acoustic potential. To enable the levitation of a particle, a custom IC chip is essential in reducing the size and weight of the particle. In the design of the custom IC chip, a new voltage detector circuit enabling an accurate voltage detection and a correct output during the start-up is proposed to achieve an intermittent lighting of the LED to increase the maximum distance between the transmitter and the receiver coil. Luciola is applied to a self-luminous pixel in a mid-air display and drawings of characters in mid-air are demonstrated.

Kino-mo Hypervsn Holographic effect displays floating image.

http://kino-mo.com Hypervsn is a visual solution for creating, managing and displaying 3D video content with holographic effect by LED.

But that guy .....he realy dont like present his product !!!

Digital Marquee (LED Pylon) - The Forum Shops: Caesars Palace | Las Vegas | 4K UHD.

A unique installation on the Las Vegas strip, the Pylon sign outside of The Forum shops is a 3D canvas designed to interest and excite the millions of visitors per year who walk past it.

The software, developed by Acquire Digital, enables the stunning content to wrap around the high-resolution, custom-built 3D LED architecture of animated columns - simulating classic Roman, Marble, and in fact anything, to frame the main content visible on the strip. Also unique is the attention-grabbing transition, enabling the typical cut or fade to black as content swaps from one item in the playlist to another to be hidden behind a 3D rendered transition.

To control the sign, a simple to use customised playlist manager was created to enable the client to easily upload and scheduled content, choose animations and columns, and synchronise the Pylon to the nearby Windows (to enable fully immersive 'takeover' messages to occur).

The sign is owned and operated by Simon Properties, Software by Acquire Digital, Content by Moment Factory, Pylon by Yesco.

Japanese researchers develop ultrathin, highly elastic skin display.

The soft, flexible skin display is about 1 millimeter thick, and consists of a 16 x 24 array of micro LEDs and stretchable wiring mounted on a rubber sheet. It can withstand repeated stretching, by as much as 45 percent of its original length, without showing any loss in function of its electrical and mechanical properties. Credit: 2018 Takao Someya Research Group.

A new ultrathin elastic display that fits snugly on the skin can show the moving waveform of an electrocardiogram recorded by a breathable, on-skin electrode sensor. Combined with a wireless communication module, this integrated biomedical sensor system, called "skin electronics," can transmit biometric data to the cloud.

This latest research by a Japanese academic-industrial collaboration, led by Professor Takao Someya at the University of Tokyo's Graduate School of Engineering, is slated for a news briefing and talk at the AAAS Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas on February 17th.

International Woolmark Prize - REVEAL.

From Factory Fifteen

We directed the campaign for the 2017-18 International Woolmark Prize in Florence. Our task was to develop a theme and visual identity for the awards which spoke of innovation and was loyal to the brand.

We came up with a single motif: ‘DISRUPT THE THREAD.

We applied this motif to several pieces of content for the live show and digital, including a choreographed catwalk projection sequence, an interactive installation, graphic design, website assets and social media posts. We worked in tandem with event producers OBO and the lighting designers.

SHOW REVEAL SEQUENCE Our approach to the stage, where the collections would be revealed was to create an animated curtain of thread. This thread acted much like a theatre curtain, hiding the stage itself and animating / disrupting subtly before the show. During the reveal itself the thread comes to life. We created a 3 minute animated sequence which was timed to models walking out onto a purpose built stage. We developed 12 different techniques of digitally animated thread which represented the 12 nominees and their innovative approach to the design and manufacture of wool. A transparent gauze was used as the projection surface to envelop the models in the animation as they walked out.

Epson Announces Projector Control Software to Manage Multiple Projectors Simultaneously.

Epson today announced the Epson Projector Professional Tool (EPPT), a software utility that helps users set up multiple Epson projectors and allows easy access to advanced features such as edge blending, geometric correction and auto image calibration. The software is free to download and is designed for use with Epson’s Pro L-Series large venue laser projectors.

The Epson Projector Professional Tool automatically finds and displays all projectors on the network and makes changes easy by allowing users to adjust focus and lens shift and control basic projector functions, such as turning power on and off or displaying a test image. In addition, the software offers a straight forward graphical interface for the installer right out of the box and allows the user to drag and drop individual projectors to change the image layout.

Here are all the details on the software.

KAIST flexible vertical micro LEDs

Researchers from Korea's KAIST developed flexible vertical micro-LEDs (f-VLEDs) using anisotropic conductive film (ACF)-based transfer and interconnection technology.

The researchers developed their own transfer equipment and used it to fabricate a 50x50 array of f-VLEDs using simultaneous transfer and interconnection through the precise alignment of ACF bonding process. The researchers report that the micro-LEDs achieved an optical power density of 30 mW/mm2 - which is three times higher than that of lateral micro LEDs. The LEDs offer improving thermal reliability and lifetime by reducing heat generation within the thin film LEDs.

These new flexible-VLEDs have possible applications in the display market, but the researchers also say that these can be suited for biomedical applications.

In September 2016, KAIST established a start-up company called FFRONICS that will commercialize KAIST's flexible sensor and wearable technologies, and it seems that Fronics is now also set to develop this flexible Micro-LED technology

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 façade, 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.

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.
