Multi-Touch Interface by Christian Bannister

October 19th, 2009 // No Comments // Posted by Matthias

Our world becomes more and more artificial. Navigate websites via voice or camera, driving on futuristic vehicle instead of walking, saving tones of data on to tiny flashcards or produce music with the most spacey controller ever, like christian bannister with his multi-touch interface!

Some ideas I’ve seen in the past where going in the same direction but for me this is definitely the closest one. This is the first prototype by christian. The musician, designer and developer located in Portland, Oregon doing constantly updates – pursue that on

Reincarnation by Memo Akten

May 7th, 2009 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

Here is a beautiful example of what you can do with the openFramwork library.

“This is an off-shoot from a visual performance accompanying the Rambert Dance Company in London. (…)
When the clip starts, you probably won’t recognize a human shape at first, but your eyes and mind will be searching, seeking mental connections between abstract shapes and recognizable patterns, like looking for shapes in clouds. You’ll be questioning what you see, is that him? is he sitting? is he crouching? is he kneeling? until all of a sudden, he’ll be crystal clear. Then you’ll try and keep him in focus, following him as he moves around, tracking each limb, using his motion to construct an image of the parts you can’t see. He’ll fade in and out of clarity.”

AS3: Fragmentation Class Tutorial Pt. 2

January 14th, 2009 // 3 Comments // Posted by Paul


Deutsche Version

The second Part of the Tutorial is a little bit more tricky. Since we provided one surface of grey tiles in the first part only, we will now improve the whole in that way that each individual tile is filled with the appropriate cutout of the BitmapData of an image file. The tiled Sprites are positioned by one for loop and they represent the picture again correctly. The difference to the original is not to determine because the Sprites lie exactly next to each other. From these tiles we create as last step a ParticleObject to be able to animate it later.

AS3 Fragmentation Class Tutorial Pt. 1

December 17th, 2008 // 3 Comments // Posted by Paul


german version

To create this nice fragmentation effect like the one from Andy Foulds`s homepage, i have written this little AS3 Class. The first part of the tutorial will mainly focus on how to get this effect running. The second part shows a way to get an arbitrary DisplayObject onto the fragmentation layer to create a cooler transition effect.

The example code uses a DocumentClass wich is just executed by “FragmentExample.fla”. So don´t be confused if you do not find any AS3 in the *.fla file.
