EmoCapsule.com Accepted to SIGGRAPH ‘08 Comments | Jun 24 2008

SIGGRAPH 2008 

An update on Emocapsule.com, with great news our group has been ACCEPTED to take part in SIGGRAPH 2008 being hosted in LA. We will be presenting the week of August 11 - 15 at Los Angeles Convention Centre. This is big news, for those unaware as to what SIGGRAPH (short for Special Interest Group on GRAPHics and Interactive Techniques) is a Internation Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactivity Techniques which is being hosted at the LA Convention Center during August 11 - 15 2008. In 2005 25 000 people attended the conference, this is something to be pumped about being accepted to.

EmoCapsule is a study of interactivity. Participants influence the installation by inputting their emotions at emocapsule.com. The website provides users with emotional statistics and trends based on frequency, location, and weather information collected. The installation is dynamically updated to reflect the dominant emotional mood. 

Visitors interact with the current emotional state of the EmoCapsule installation - depicted through sound, text, and colour. Participants move and catch emotion words using their own silhouette and other objects. Participants make loud noises, triggering the installation to emit reactive sounds and display new words. These form a sort of conversation between the user and the installation space. 

 

So if you will please check out Emocapsule.com and or the SIGGRAPH website. With Love JSHAW and the EmoCapsule Team

Vimeo - Streaming HD Comments | May 03 2008

I recently saw that Vimeo now supports streaming HD. I believe it was Stage6 that I heard supported streaming HD but Vimeo has executed it well. A great feature is the ability to turn on and off the HD quality to allow quicker buffering times. Anyways, what better way to preview it than watch a video of one of the illustrations on their site be developed. Prints of the finished illustration can be bought here.Science Machine from Chad Pugh on Vimeo.Also there’s a video The Wind From Death Valley which may display a little better the amusingness of HD.The Wind of Death Valley - HD from Jon Rawlinson on Vimeo.It seems that you can only stream HD from the Vimeo site and not the embed. Huh…
