Bringing Toys To Life: Intel Labs OASIS Project

January 26, 2011

This is a cool video from research scientist Beverly Harrison and company working on the OASIS (Object-Aware Situated Interactive System) project at Intel Labs. They recently gave a demo of the project at CES this year featuring a Kinect style camera and projector.

Via RGBDVision:

“OASIS is a flexible software architecture that enables us to prototype applications that use depth cameras and underlying computer vision algorithms to recognize and track objects and gestures, combined with interactive projection. Here we show OASIS in an interactive Lego playing scenario.”

Call for Projection Mapping Companies

January 25, 2011

Update! We’ve compiled the list and launched a whole new website to connect event organizers with projection mapping firms. If you would like to be included then Register Your Company.

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new website for the projection mapping community, Projection Mapping Central. It is a free community resource for all things related to projection mapping. Projection Mapping Central is a compendium of information about projection mapping software, hardware, tutorials, design companies, festivals and more.

It is a place where advertisers and event organizers can find a firm to make their dreams a reality. It is a place where a beginner can figure out how to “map”, or an expert can keep up to date with the latest tools.

If you are an artist, programmer, advertiser or event organizer, welcome.

[Original Post]

We are frequently contacted by artists, marketing agencies, basketball teams and other random entities looking for projection mapping (spatial augmented reality) consulting. Unfortunately, as Ph.D. students we frequently don’t have the time to aid in artistic or commercial endeavors.

Therefore, we are compiling a list of consulting companies or individuals who are able to assist in projection mapping. We would like to hear from both artist and programmer types. We are particularly interested in people in the United States (which is where most of our requests come from). If you would like to be included in the list please comment on this post or send a private message to augmentedengineering A_T gmail D_O_T com.

Please include:
Organization name
Website
Contact Information
Along with a brief description of who you are, what your organization does, how big your organization is, whom you would like to assist, previous work (include links), and anything else you think might be relevant.

We will be compiling a list and posting it when completed. If you would like to keep your information private just tell us.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Puma Lift Ad

March 25, 2009

From what I can tell this is a dance routine tightly choreographed to projected video content. An interesting experiment, although we seem to be a long way off from doing this accurately with motion tracking.
