Interactive Robotic Painting Machine

August 25th, 2011

Interactive Robotic Painting Machine” is an installation by Benjamin Grosser. I guess won’t have to explain to you what it is. The machine uses artificial intelligence to paint its own body of work and to make its own decisions. While doing so, it listens to its environment and considers what it hears as input into the painting process.

August 17th, 2011

ADA is an analog interactive installation made by Karina Smigla-Bobinski. It’s helium filled sphere spiked with charcoal pieces, trapped in a white room. I guess it’s quite clear what happens as soon as someone interacts with the sphere …

PING! Augmented Pixel

July 5th, 2011

“PING! Augmented Pixel” is Niklas Roy‘s latest project.

“PING! – Augmented Pixel” is a seventies style video game, that adds a layer of digital information and old-school aesthetics to a video signal: A classic rectangular video game ball moves across a video image. Whenever the ball hits something dark, it bounces off. The game itself has no rules and no goal.

You could say that it’s just an augmented reality version of Pong. But Niklas just did a little more than just that. PING! – Augmented Pixel doesn’t use a computer to process the video signal and display the game. Niklas made a read hardware box with its own micro-controller. Impressive work!

Squeal

June 19th, 2011

The Hong Kong musician/producer/composer Gaybird Leung asked Henry Chu to create a music app for his show Digital Hug. He wanted an instrument that could respond to body gesture like a theremin. So Henry developed Squeal which is based on his other app SoundGyro. With Squeal you’ll be able to trigger sounds by tapping on the eyes, nose, and cheeks of a face. And if you tilt the iPad you’ll be able switch between 3 octaves. The app will be available in the app store from July on, but you can still submit your own portrait to be part of it.

DataBot Mouse

June 17th, 2011

DataBot Mouse is very interesting experiment by Jan Barth and Roman Grasy. They’ve developed a computer mouse which can give data physical properties, to make the communication/interaction between man and data more human and easier to understand.

The mouse is able to communicate three different properties of data. It can show you the weight of files and folders, by braking with different force, according to the file-size. Or you can set a custom weight for files, just like the color marking function in MacOSX. So you can find important files more easily.
The third property, the mouse can show you, is the activity of files and folders. By “breathing” with different intervals, it shows how much a file was opened or how busy a folder has been recently.

It was developed with vvvv and arduino.

3 Dreams of Black

May 13th, 2011

3 Dreams of Black” is a new interactive film directed by Chris Milk for the song “Black” by ROME, a music project by Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi featuring Jack White & Norah Jones. The project is a Chrome Experiment that showcases some of the latest web technologies like WebGL in modern browsers like Google Chrome.
Not only can you interact with video, you can also add your own items to the dream or see what others have build. For those of you who want to know the technical details: this page will keep you busy for a while. The model view and the demos are just as impressive.
Aaron Koblin was the creative director of this project and Mr.doob the technical director and of course a bunch of really talented people. You might also want to check out “The Wilderness Downtown“, a project with many people who were also involved in this one.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been that blown away by a web technology. So if you have the latest version of Google Chrome installed and a pretty decent graphicscard, go ahead and be …

FRAMED*

May 9th, 2011

FRAMED* – a platform for new art forms – was first conceptualized by Yugo Nakamura of tha ltd. to display diverse forms of expression including interactive art, web applications, motion graphics & illustration in everyday interior spaces. FRAMED* looks and is a display, but with an integrated computer. The interesting thing is the integration with an iPhone app which lets you choose which piece to display but also allows you to interact through the touchscreen with digital artwork. The iPhone app has also a build in store to buy and install new works. I think it’s quite an interesting concept for a digital art market. I wouldn’t having a FRAMED* on one of my walls …
