1. [Edit, June 2016: To the best of my knowledge, this work with Arturo Castro is the first example of realistic "face swapping" in realtime. If you're interested in experimenting with the technique, I recommend Audun's implementation here auduno.github.io/clmtrackr/examples/facesubstitution.html ]

    Working on an idea with Arturo Castro vimeo.com/29279198 I feel like "good" blending looks almost too natural to be surprising. It doesn't leave any interpolation up to your imagination. It's possible to push this style further, so it's less of a blend and more of a replacement, but then you get unnatural colors and shadows.

  2. Kinect Russian Roulette is a speed project by Theo Watson, which allows you to play Russian Roulette with just your hand and a Kinect.

    The project was made in 3 hours at the Art Hack Day at 319 Scholes and is made with openFrameworks 007 and ofxKinect.

    This project is tongue and cheek and is not endorsed by anyone or any brand. Just a ridiculous idea which needed to be made :)

    Code ( very messy ) will be posted to github.

  3. Chris Sugrue from the Eyewriter team, demos the open source Eyewriter 2.0 system connected to the ABB + GML powered Livewriter arm. The process is Tracking -> Callibration -> Typing -> Send to Robot Arm :)

    We used the keyboard mode to allow children to quickly write their name with their eye. The typeface output to the Livewriter was designed by Tempt 1 with the original Eyewriter system. See a test run drawing the full alphabet at: vimeo.com/16045102

  4. I was comissioned by Deitch Projects to create four interactive installations for a Michel Gondry exhibtion, based around his new film 'The Science of Sleep'. Working with Michel Gondry I created a video piano which played videos corresponding to which key you pushed, a blue screening cardboard camera, a rope controlled installation that allowed you to pull open the actor's eyes individually and a huge fake window that played scenes from the film and triggered lighting effects in the room based on what was happening in the fake outside world.
