I have just returned from Taipei where I created this interactive projection performance work. I used a camera with IR pass filter as vision input and then applied a few different techniques to create these visuals in real-time.

Hardware used
Intel core2duo 2.6 ghz
4gig RAM
Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS 512MB
Input – Kworld DVD Maker 2.0 USB
Camera – CCTV cam with IR pass filter.





FTIR – multi-touch

October 23, 2008

Here’s video of the FTIR screen that i made a few months back. It’s surprised me as to how easy it was to build and get working. The hard bit (and it is complicated) is to interpret the blobs on screen and make them do something interesting [i’m yet to achieve this 🙂 ] Currently i’m using a mixture of reactivision / Max/msp / Touch designer FTE to interpret and manipulate the data. I’ll upload code and patches in the coming weeks.

“Most companies would call themselves innovative and would claim they’re delivering an above-average service to their customers. Yet, their customers opinions might differ. If you drill a company on their innovation practices, they would probably mention two approaches they employ: 1. Their research department meets with target groups, compiles presentations for the upper management, which then occasionally hands those reports over to the development department. 2. Their research or marketing department comes up with competitive matrix of the products available from competition. In a meeting then, executives see that their product is missing a feature, and hence the development department is assigned the task of adding ‘an Internet-enabled installer’ to the product, since everybody else offers them, thereby creating market expectations.” subject to change by – Peter Merholz, Todd Wilkens, Brandon Schauer, David Verba
