30 meter full dome projection

Office Broomer's full dome projection during daytime. We projected in our 30 meter dome with a massive 180.000 ansi lumen projection system. No blackout screen was used. On top of that 8 layers of alpha projecting angels. These angels were triggered by visitors during the entrance of a event.

Hey all,



My inbox has been ringing off the hook for months with DF09 inquiries. Thank you and please accept my apologies for being unresponsive. It’s been a very very busy and interesting year here at the ARTS Lab.



So here’s where we are:



We’ve been scheming and dreaming about DomeFest 2009 and have a lot of special programs planned. And we’ve been working to find the right time to gather ( and lots of partners to arrange).



We’ve finally landed upon… Continue

SAT support the introduction of a Dome Camera in Blender 2.5

The Society for Arts and Technology research group, SAT[Metalab] in Montreal has worked with the Blender open source community to support the introduction of a fisheye dome camera for virtual walktroughs and immersive 3d film. Hope to see a lot more open tools soon. Anyone knows about an open source multi projection blending system for domes?

Microsoft Mapping Course to a Jetsons-Style Future

FullBuilding?

At ARTS Lab, I'm always blathering on about fulldome as not only an important medium* outright, but also as a launch-point for learning to design for all the crazy places and ways we're splaying pixels beyond the 4:3 and 16:9 frames and personal-to-multiplex display scales. On that point, check out this Times Square monstrosity:…

Enter the Allosphere

“There’s nothing like it in the world,” says host JoAnn Kuchera-Morin, the brain-parent of this enormous round room, this gateway to immersive media experiential bliss. She’s not exactly right — there have been large immersive theaters since the early 1990s — but the Allosphere is both more immersive and less subjective, according to its proponents, as you will soon see.…

flexible imaging arrays

A team from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has developed and built a flexible pixel imaging array. Instead of a planar, rigid array, like the CMOS and CCD detectors that are now common in digital cameras, their sensor can be curved. Their goal is to build a camera that is similar to the human eye, where as you'll recall, the imaging is done on the retina on the curved hemispherical inside of… Continue

You Looking At Me? Scientists Develop Electronic-Eye Camera

http://www.crn.com/hardware/209904446

Engineers John Rogers of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Yonggang Huang of Northwestern University, Chicago have created an electronic eye-shaped camera that uses a new class of electronics technology that can conform to almost any shape of a human eye. The new retina-like camera sensor uses flexible photosensitive pixels.

Microsoft's <i>Sphere</i>

Microsoft has a follow-up to their Surface table, and CNET has a couple of articles about the Sphere. I'm not sure how useful this will be. We already have considerable experience with Science on a Sphere. Even with four projectors and a 2 meter diameter sphere, there are clear limitations to how much detail you can see on a SoS. And although it's great for global… Continue

Making video more memorable, interesting, informative, ...

Annie Lang, a professor in the Department of Telecommunications at Indiana University, has long been doing research to understand how people view and react to video stimuli.

3D volumetric display patent

Here's a patent for a new 3D volumetric display. What's cool about it is that it is not the volumetric display (which is not radically novel), but the haptic user interface allowing real-time hands-on manipulation of the virtual data.… Continue
