Audi Car Configurator on Surface @ IAA 2009 from Neue Digitale / Razorfish on Vimeo.

Audi A4 Car Configurator by Neue Digitale / Razorfish in collaboration with Realtime Technology AG.

Simple gestures allow the user to alter virtually anything on the A4, with instant results. Microsoft Surface doesn’t provide the appropriate hardware, so the application is connected to a dedicated render-server via network. The speed is quite good for a high-quality rendering and it can be easily improved by switching to a more powerful server.

Say goodbye to the 100-page optional extras book.

Fontplore. Interactive app for searching and exploring font databases

As the development and distribution of interactive tables is still in its early days, they see the Fontplore Table as some kind of customer attraction for the bigger design agencies, where clients and designers get together and share the experience of selecting a suitable typeface for the project.

Some Cool Visual Interface Stuff

Computer vision technologies for manipulating digital interfaces with gestures are already here and mature; now it’s simply a matter of designing creative applications around them. And as with many design tasks, presentation is everything.

ActionScript programmer Peter Kaptein has done some brilliant creative work to mimic the infamous gestural interface in the film Minority Report using only Flash, FLAR toolkit, a webcam, a printer.. and his fingers.

Jeremy Bailey created this project to promote the programmes and services of Squeaky Wheel Media Arts Center. He wrote his own physical interface presentation software from the ground up to help me accomplish this task. This video is the result. Mad.

Chris O’Shea found this demo of the upcoming game Your Shape for Wii. The camera vision itself is fairly simple, but the software is being clever about mapping foreground motion to some pre-determined 3D model of the body.

And here’s the Your Shape trailer.

Chris also wrote this fascinating post at the mysterious controller for Project Natal. Worth a read.

RGB City

We pitched this idea to a client for an outdoor experience but it never came to fruition.

Shame really – I still think it’s a lot of fun and kinda cool.

Dis-patch presents RGB City by Lust (NL) from Dis-patch Festival on Vimeo.

RGB CITY is an interactive light/sound installation of impressive proportions, spread over a building site in the central area of Student’s Square. A new landmark for Belgrade. A building that seems to be alive, each room filled with lights whose movement and color are constantly in flux.
