Awesome Laser Tag mod put together by the students of Professor Shigeru Kobayashi from the IAMAS university in Japan.
Professor Shigeru ( inventor of the awesome Gainer hardware system and the Funnel hardware protocol ) took part in the openFrameworks workshop Zach and I gave in YCAM this fall. In the workshop he hacked Laser Tag to allow brush and color controls from one of his wireless hardware units. Looks like his students took it one step further.
Long story short, I made some squiggle bots to scam Web 2.0 douchebags out of money during an open artist studio event this weekend. Late last night, I had the urge to mount and hang one of these pointless scribbles amongst the serious artwork hung in the lobby space of the studio building. So, foregoing permission, I hung it up with a sign reading “A Study in Centripetal Force for use in Marker Application Applications.” It’s almost not worth mentioning, but I thought I would bring it up since doing this made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Last week I was contacted to make a video for a new Kanye West produced Jay-Z song for RED & the Global Fund to Fight AIDS in Africa. It launched today (World AIDS Day) at red.msn.com. And while I’m happy to be able to help the cause I’m also more than a little bit excited about getting a chance to make something for the likes of Jay-Z and Kanye. I’ve been turning down client requests to use Typographic Illustration for 5 years in hopes that one day the phone would ring and it would be Hova. The video can be seen on (RED) WIRE, or at this direct link on MSN video (I will update with an embed-able video shortly). I’m pretty sure that this is the first rap video to end with a download source code link.
