we downloaded the data this morning and started to render it in real-time 3d. imagine a music video that you can walk through! we finished the first visualizations this evening.
peter eschler and i wrote a python script that converts radiohead’s csv coordinate data into an x3d / instantreality particleset. he already started interpreting the intensity values as z-depth, color and dot-size. you can download the python script (bsd license) at his website: http://www.pyjax.net/blog/1/2008/07/15/converting…
the real-time 3d data looks impressive on our new heyewall 2.0 – a multi-touch projection wall with 8160 x 4000 pixel resolution. the next days we will add a wiimote / balance board interaction for controlling time and distortion.
peter created an atomizer of thom’s virtual copy.
