Peep the video above, and make sure to check out Xinobi’s take on “Darkest Night” below. It’s a great one!

Avengers Visual FX

Avengers Visual FX:

I just finished recording 3 hours of training for the Explosive Train sequence so while I finish editing that… check out this amazing demo from ILM on the VFX work for The Avengers. 3 Hours of recorded training is probably 1.5 hours after editing out rendering and bad jokes. Stay tuned, it’s a big series.

VTLZR @Zenith Paris:re-blog from 1024 Architecture
Wow, just wow.

We had an amazing show this week end at the Paris Zenith – the show was sold out -

Here are some pictures, which unfortunately do not properly render the mood of the show, as the lights were moving amazingly fast, in sync to the music.

Since we were playing “at home”, we had the opportunity to add a few fixtures to the setup, namely 20 Martin Viper, 20 more Shaprys (60 in total) and a grand total of 32 Atomic Strobs, all remotely controlled by Vitalic’s computer – on stage – from Ableton Live.
It was the perfect show according to our standards, everything went fine, despite 2 computer reboot during the show – thanks to the super tech team nobody noticed – and some heavy hum coming from the Midi cable … grrrr
Next show is in Cran-Montana, Swiss.




And the last one, which looks like a proof that 1024 is actually bending the light … ;) Space Warp anyone ?

James Yuill: “Turn Yourself Around” Video:re-blog from La.Ga.Sta

Filmed in the desert of Tabernas in southern Spain, here’s the official video for James Yuill’s brilliant new single “Turn Yourself Around”, taken from his upcoming third album “These Spirits”, which drops on March 18th via his own label The Happy Biscuit Club.
The video, which features Daniel Taylor, is based on “the Greek myth of Sisyphus who was condemned to push a boulder up a hill only to watch it roll back downhill and to repeat this task forever.” James Yuill’s pledge music campaign is still running, so get involved here.

BIKE SPIKES: re-blog from Polkadot

Cari ciclisti, ghiaccio e neve non saranno più un problema per voi!

Ci ha pensato il designer Cesar van Rongen, con Bike Spikes.

Bike Spikes è l’equivalente delle catene da neve per le auto, ma per le biciclette. Si tratta di un involucro di gomma, con punte di ferro incorporate, che ricopre lo pneumatico della bicicletta dando una presa perfetta sui tratti ghiacciati della strada. E’ composto da sei parti flessibili, che possono essere facilmente fissate alle ruote di qualsiasi city bike, grazie a un filo metallico che scorre tra di esse in modo che possano essere fissate attorno alla ruota.

E se il ghiaccio si scioglie, Spikes Bike può essere tolto in un attimo e ripiegato in un piccolo e compatto pacchetto.

Automatically Projection Mapping a 3D, Moving Object: White Kanga Show Stunning Tech

Automatically Projection Mapping a 3D, Moving Object: White Kanga Show Stunning Tech:

Hide’n'Seek – Technology Demo from White Kanga on Vimeo.
Automatically map an object with a projector. Keep the mapping working as the object moves. And, oh yeah, look damned fine while doing it.
That’s the neat trick Poland-based White Kanga have pulled off, powered by TouchDesigner. We’ve been following their work before:
Robotic Mapping Pulls a Model Building, Tron-Like, Into the Virtual
Projection Mapping, with Robotics, Goes Further to Augmenting Reality: MPS Demo [TouchDesigner]
Here, we get to really see it in action. It doesn’t hurt that you get cool graphics visualizing the calibration. It’s an internal tool, but it demonstrates a lot of what’s possible.
I was in Poland for their national day yesterday, but watching this video makes me want to start waving around the white and red flag and cheering on this crew. (Or, if they like, whatever flag/mascot they choose.) Brilliant work.
