Color Sensitive Interactive Billboard from milton cj on Vimeo.

I heard Adam Greenfield of Do projects talk at The Future of Advertising a few weeks back. (He’s worth checking out if you get chance).

One of the things he’s interested in is how advertising impacts the urban environment. And advertising as something that can calming and restful instead of fast cut and frenetic. (I’ve shorten and paraphrased him really badly here – sorry Adam).

It’s a really interesting field – so I like this sort of work.

Simple but engaging. Nice.

5x flat panel displays = pCubee 3D

“Look at the shiny shiny cube….”

The smart people at the University of British Columbia have created a “personal cubic head-coupled 3D display that shows reactive 3D scenes”.

Basically it’s a box that adjusts to movements, and lets you interact with objects inside a virtual 3D world.

pCubee is made with five flat-panel screens that uses perspective-corrected rendering and real-time physics simulation to create compelling visualization and interaction techniques for 3D content.

Very clever. Very cool.

Real or CG. Gran Turismo 5 is blurring the lines even more.

Took a couple of viewings for my eyes to tell the difference on one of the shots.

Technically impressive. Can’t wait to see what the game play is like.

Nice bit of tracking so you can use your face as the main input.

Written using the OpenCV library for processing.

Matt Ditton is hands on with quite of different things. Programming, photography, indie games development, tech art, environment modeler, university lecturer, DVA student. To find out more, see thequietvoid.com and his Flickr here. Not bad eh.
