For the open day on Jan 18th we set up the Previzion virtual camera system in a small greenscreen set so visitors could see themselves in a virtual environment. For this demonstration we used Unity's Robot Lab, and to demonstrate real-time interaction with the virtual environment, I hacked together a simple Inverse Kinematics system controlling the robot arm using a Leap Motion 3D sensor.
McEwen Studio presents "Give the Finger" a prototype of a Primate-enabled wall system for Akademie Schloss Solitude's Architecture & exhibit opening November 21, 2013. Primate, a piece of software authored by McEwen Studio, is the first plugin to integrate Leap Motion, a hand gesture recognition device, with parametric architectural design tools. Primate has over 500 users worldwide who have downloaded the software for free.
This installation presents a working prototype of an interactive wall system. The prototype phase acts on a transparent surface to create a range of opacities and transparencies. In design terms, this constitutes a proof of concept for a mechanical model with the same properties. "Give the Finger" is installed here with "Adjacency Survey (Scan)" a sound collaboration with Bill Dietz, embedded with transducers in the [Not Luxury] disposable furniture series by McEwen Studio.
