MuseoMix 2013: Musée Dauphinois [FR]
8-9-10th November 2013

MuseoMix is a annual event targeting to gather designers, lecturers, fabLabs, programmers, working together to rethink the potential of museums and their audience. The work gathers for a three day consecutive challenge, to remix an art piece or a place, to brainstorm divided by teams and produce a final proposition.

Le Musée dont je suis le héros !

Workshop 3D “Frontieres, ToolBox” [FR]

From Tuesday 17 to Friday 20 January 2012.
The workshop takes part of the “frontieres” Projet Managed by the IMéRA in collaboration with the academy of fine arts from Aix en Provence and m2fCreations. IMéRA is an Institute for Advanced Study, or IAS (Institut d’Etudes Avancées, IEA). This Art / Science project of two years ( 2012 / 2013 )  will propose a research on geolocation and borders ( politic, virtual, topologic ) and their mutation. The workshop will focus on borders and their history, use of 3D techniques for realtime navigation with real geographic data ( Elevation maps ). Navigation / TelePort / Télé-Communication / Réseaux / Frontières.
Use of Autodesk 123D catch for Photo Modeling, use of Google Sketchup Pro for the Warehouse 3D Library and terrain elevation, Use of NxGraphics for real time rendering.

SRTM 90m Digital Elevation Data, The Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) obtained elevation data on a near-global scale to generate the most complete high-resolution digital topographic database of Earth. SRTM consisted of a specially modified radar system that flew onboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour during an 11-day mission in February of 2000.

Hand detection software [CZ] 2008

Bought some PointGrey Firefly high framerate camera’s for LivDucci [CZ] installation in the Prague airport, you can see the developed software in action here.
At the time touchscreens were out of budget, they would have dramatically simplified the installation. The goal was to interact with the screen, so were installed 2 point grey camera’s for X and Y tracking, made with iR background substraction and OpenCV.
