Another from SuperUber that might be very basic but i think is very bold and effective.
I like how they instead of having a flat screen, made this interesting “coral” like pattern with the screens.
“Buzios’ Coral Reef Park Visitor Center – Interactive screens, synchronized projections and corals on display are part of the interactive andarchitectural design project created by SuperUber for the Buzios’ Coral Reef Park Visitor Center,located in one of the most popular spots in the city: Rua das Pedras. The exhibition’s visual concept creates an immersive environment with shapes inspired by coral patterns, which together form a mosaic of images, made of videos, animations, corals and information, with themes such as preservation, oceanography and environmental education. Original ambient sound for the projections composed by Lucas Marcier.” Text from site
One of my new fave company’s out there to look out for I must say is SuperUber. They have some fun ideas and visuals.
Here is the Minas Gerais – Vale Memorial they did in Belo Horizonte November 2010.
“The Minas Gerais – Vale Memorial concept, in Belo Horizonte, presents the state’s history using multimedia and interactive resources. The building opened in november 2010 and was restored according to Gringo Cardia’s project. The Memorial’s technology director is Russ Rive – CEO and CTO of SuperUber – responsible for the research and technology strategy that made possible the Museum’s original interactions. The Memorial is part of the Liberdade Square Cultural Circuit, project that counts with 10 different cultural centers and offers knowledge, art, science and entertainment to people. Two examples of museums in the Circuit are the Mines and Metal Museum and the TIM UFMG Knowledge Center, both having SuperUber’s works. The interactive project of the Memorial has a sophisticated technology set up for a large museum, with over 30 rooms. The innovative interfaces are specially made for the text, videos, animations and sounds of the Museum. The project also includes some interfaces where people can access content through iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Here are a few featured installations:
Modernism Room – a large projected multitouch table, about modernism in Minas Gerais, Brazil and the world.
Rock art room – electronic sensors and interactive animations show the ancient rock art drawings in movement.
Minas Gerais Farm room – projection mapping with images made by Minas Gerais artist Humberto Mauro, projected onto typical objects from a farm.” copy from site
Hailed by The Australian as the country’s best modern dance company, choreographer Gideon Obarzanek’s Chunky Move dazzles audiences with its use of site-specific installations and interactive sound and light technologies. Obarzanek’s avant-garde performances explore the tensions between the rational world we live in and richness of our imagination.

“”Little Magic Stories” is the latest project by Chris O’Shea, with aim to encourage children to use their creativity to bring stories to life.

Chris achieved all this by using the Musion Eyeliner holographic projection system, An Xbox Kinect camera and the software used was C++, openFrameworks, openCV and Box2D.
Hatsune Miku (初音ミク) is a singing synthesizer application with a female persona, developed by Crypton Future Media. It uses Yamaha Corporation’s Vocaloid synthesizing technology. The name of the character comes from a fusion of the Japanese for first (初 hatsu), sound (音 ne) and future (Miku (ミク) sounds like a nanori reading of future, 未来, normally read as “mirai”), referring to her position as the first of Crypton’s “Character Vocal Series”. She was the second Vocaloid to be sold using the Vocaloid 2 engine and the first Japanese Vocaloid to use the Japanese version of the Vocaloid 2 engine. Her voice is sampled from Japanese voice actress, Saki Fujita. Hatsune Miku has performed onstage as a projection. (Text from Wikipedia)
Face tracking meets face projection.
Im not 100% sure how practical this is, to my knowledge having a projector projecting light into your eyes could lead to some serious issues, but at least it looks cool.
