Voice Drawing

February 3rd, 2009

Ze Frank, yeah you might heard of him, made a little flash drawing tool. You won’t need a mouse but  a microphone if you want to draw. A low volume tone will make the line curve counterclockwise, a medium will let it run straight and a high volume will turn the line to the right. Somehow he manged to draw this arty face and figure, unfortunately he didn’t post a video of him creating those. You can try it out for yourself here.
I bet he isn’t the first one to build something like this. It actually reminds me of the Sonic Wire Sculptor made by Amit Pitaru, which works the other way around. You can generate sound by drawing lines.

Erik Natzke

October 30th, 2008

Erik Natzke knows how to manipulate algorithms to generate his art. He actually uses Adobe Flash, which is quite impressive, although he could probably do it with any other tool. These works were done for the WIRED NextFest.

Desktop Fireworks

September 1st, 2008

I’ve been following the development of FLARToolKit for some time now and it’s getting more interesting day by day. What it is? FLARToolKit is a Flash Actionscript port of ARToolKit, a software library for building Augmented Reality applications. Huh? Maybe you’ve seen some really cool Augmented Reality videos before. The FLARToolKit will bring all of this to your webbrowser when you have a webcam and a recent Flash Player.
This is one of the most exciting Flash things I’ve seen for a while now. Saqoosha, a Japanese Flash developer, made this little demo: Desktop Fireworks. You will need a the Flash Player 9, a webcam and you’ll need to print out this marker. I’ve already did some tests together with Papervision3D and I can say we’ll probably see more of this soon. This is Flash at it’s best baby!

Yosuke Abe

August 26th, 2008

Yosuke Abe is an Art Director at tha ltd., a Japanese web design agency. He is one of the creators of FFFFOUND!, one of my favorite websites. I’ve featured almost every project by tha ltd., I guess I’m a true fan of their work. They did the Design and the Elastic Mind website, they made that lush screensaver called Dropclock, that funny Softbank website and the multi user UNIQLO Grid.
Back to Yosuke, he did some nice projects himself too. Here are 2 which I really like.

JOCATORE / ALLENATORE‘, you can switch the focus of the video between the ball and the window.

adidas Y-3 fall/winter 2008-2009

August 22nd, 2008

The adidas Y-3 is one of the few websites who relaunch twice a year. It’s a fashion thing I guess, adidas Y-3 is a cooperation between adidas and Yohji Yamamoto. Over the years, the website was always on the forefront of Flash based web design. But it is nice to see that they are cutting down on the effects and go for a more straight forward approach. I’ve noticed this on many websites lately, simplicity is making a big comeback. So maybe the spring/summer 2009 website will be mix between Flash and HTML.

This womens shoe called ‘Molnet’ is definitely one of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen with 3 stripes on. It is so hideous that is cool again, just never ever put those red things on.
