‘Dublin Interactive’

A mural with a difference.

Brian Kenny, of Lightscape [a projection mapping & creative content studio based in Dublin] writes:

We developed this interactive wall mural to show us real time information about our neighbourhood.

Using projection mapping and interactive ink, it displays information about things like weather and transport links (more details at link below).

The ink is responsive to touch so you can order a pizza or a taxi by pressing on the graphic.

Dirty walls!

In fairness.

The theremin or aetherphone, patented by Russian inventor Léon Theremin in 1928 and currently manufactured by Moog Instruments, is an amplified proto-synthesiser that uses two metal antennae to generate frequencies based on the relative position of the user’s hands.

But you knew that.

Here’s a Chrome/Safari/Firefox-friendly interactive online player with which to amaze/annoy your family and/or colleagues right this minute.

wiki
Listen To Wikipedia (created by Stephen la Porte and Mahmoud Hashemi) is an interactive webpage that tracks changes to Wikipedia entries in real time, representing each edit with a soothing melodic plunk (or ding) and a circle. To wit:

Bells indicate additions and string plucks indicate subtractions. Pitch changes according to the size of the edit; the larger the edit, the deeper the note. Green circles show edits from unregistered contributors, and purple circles mark edits performed by automated bots. You may see announcements for new users as they join the site, punctuated by a string swell.

extrapolis

An interactive installation combining a large wall painting with 3D projection mapping and an XBox Kinect by Théoriz Crew and BKYC, who sez:

Breaking the boundaries between drawing and video projection, this digital art work litterally draws the spectator in an imaginary and alive city. Putting human life and animation at its core, Extrapolis explores and questions the relationship between the city and its inhabitants. Extrapolis draws its inspirations from both the comics world and the digital art sphere, like AntiVj’s Cityscape 2095
