Obscura Digital and the Guggenheim Museum showcased

I just can’t get enough of architectural video mapping.  This is a stunning project that wraps the Guggenheim Museum both inside and out in video.

Mind Opera Helps Bill Gates Improve

In October of 2009 Mind Opera worked with a local Seattle AD Agency, PBJS to bring Bill and Melinda’s Impatient Optimist presentation to life using the WATCHOUT technology.   This article from presentationzen blog shows how Bill’s presentations have improved over the last year and we at Mind Opera are proud to be a part of that.  Enjoy!

Experimenting with SHOWWX laser projectors

Last week Miquel from Microvision http://www.microvision.com/ dropped by the Mind Opera studios with four of their tiny laser projectors to conduct a few visual experiments.   The idea of these experiments was to combine the WATCHOUT technology with these ultra portable laser projectors to see how they would work projecting muti-screen or widescreen content.   In this first phase we used pre-made content and kept the layouts loose, just to get a feel for what was possible.   We were able to easily build muti-projector configurations, but things got real exciting when we took an old lamp shade and used three SHOWWX projectors to cover the entire cylinder.  Since the projectors are lasers they do not lose focus as the image falls off the edge of the lamp shade and using WATCHOUT’s geometry correction we were able to create a blend that was close enough to see how this concept might work.  Granted we did not use content specifically designed for our projector configurations, nor were the projectors exactly lined up based on mathematical calculations, but what we learned has sprouted new ideas and potential uses for the SHOWWX projectors.   I’m looking forward to the next experiment.

ACDC and Iron Man Destroy Rochester Castle!

Even if you’re not a big fan of AC/DC music you’ll love this technique called Architectural Projection Mapping.  On the site of a thousand years of violent history, ACDC were pitted against Iron Man in a ground breaking architectural projection mapping project.  The front facade of the Great Keep at Rochester Castle, was brought to life using the latest in 3D animation techniques. This onslaught of the senses, saw the castle confront its ultimate challenge. Warping, morphing, spewing and collapsing before the audiences eyes. Let there be rock!

WATCHOUT technology helps the Gates Foundation tell thier story

Mind Opera worked with our friends at PBJS to create a sophisticated look for the Gates Foundation keynote, Living Proof in Washington D.C.  The presentation incorporated mixed video, audio and graphics. By using WATCHOUT we knew we could
play video across the venue’s wide, curved screen without lag time or hesitation.
