Update and EspressoAMano open projection mapping project.

 I’ve been contributing to projection-mapping.org more frequently than my own blog and it has been some time since I last posted an update. For me, it’s a good problem to have, I’ve been busy…

Over the last 2 years I’ve been piling up a collection of unedited videos from a slew of projects that I’ve had the honor to be apart of.  What were once planned to be written detailed accounts for educational purposes, may well end up becoming a flashy promo reel propelled by high energy EDM pop music.  <- Or not.

It’s what I have seen everywhere else and while I understand it, it’s not in my immediate interests to create one, or to make bids on larger corporate events.  While I may consult  on such events from time to time, believe it or not, I’m in this for the fun of it.

A few days ago I finished an update for a local automated projection mapping installation.  The goal, take a cool local coffee shop and light up the upper windows at night. The ulterior motive for this? To see what others can do with the visual space when given the opportunity.

Only time will tell what’s going to happen next with this installation, but the opportunity is something that I am excited about.  Check back in a few weeks or so as I will have a detailed update of how I made this installation possible and the simple “built-in” means of projection automation.

Madmapper 2.0 Beta

MadMapper 2.0 is Awesome

Currently still in BETA and to be fully released by end of June 2015, the latest version of MadMapper 2.0 is awesome.  Multiple Sources & Inputs mapped to different masks… Better over all performance, Retina Display 64 Bit,  LED Scanner, Vector SVG to Lines Import, Support for AVFoundation which is the back end in OSX 10.9 & 10.10, and 3D Objects.  And thus far all my attempts to break the BETA have failed.  Looking forward to the full release at the end of this month.
