N1.0 architecture is a visual installation.
The video was shot during the event NODE.10, a festival of electronic music and digital arts that was held in Modena. The network projected onto the façade of Palazzo Santa Margherita is distorted by the sound emittet during the live performance of the artists.
The Kinect’s open-source PC drivers allow coders to have their way with the hardware, and we’ve already begun to see interesting things coming from the community. On NPR last Friday, a company spokesman said that wasn’t an accident: Microsoft left the USB connection open by design.That could be a retcon—or it could be the truth—but it’s nice to hear Microsoft be so welcoming of third-party drivers on the hardware, especially since the announcement was made in such a public forum. And we already have a real-time lightsaber demo… and that’s pretty much wicked.
Last year Augmented Times asked a group of AR bloggers and the readers of Games Alfresco and Augmented Times to guess what 2010 holds for augmented reality. You can see them all here. A year has passed, and now its 2011, it’s time to confront reality and check how prescient were we. Remember, this post is not about making fun of some or praise others. Actually, most of our predictions were incorrect, but at least we are not shy about them.
QR codes are popping up everywhere in the U.S. In case you aren’t familiar with the tech, a QR code is a type of barcode which is square and is made up of a complicated pattern of black and white dots. You can find them in magazines, on business cards, and even on billboards. When read with a camera and the right software, the code magically becomes a phone number, a URL, contact information and more.
Over the past year, excitement about QR Codes has grown seemingly on a daily basis. We’ve seen more and more businesses use them to promote their company, products or services. We’ve seen libraries and schools put them to use to help students and parents. We’ve also seen them provide value to specific verticals such as real estate and healthcare.
This video was produced for the module “Digital Studio” at the Bartlett’s Adaptive Architecture and Computation Msc. An Android based phone sends OSC data to a processing sketch, controlling a “Manipulator” that interacts with a cloud of agents and modifies its configuration. The result is finally exported and rendered.
