We were asked to create a pop up experience for BIGSOUND 2013′s Music + Design exhibition. We took advantage of this blank slate creative project to produce our first VR experience, a virtual reality DJ setup using an Oculus Rift development kit and a real world Midi controller piped in to VR land via webcam.
Was a really interesting experience to develop for VR and I think it’s safe to say we are hooked. The video includes some user commentary, as VR is a bit hard to ‘get’ from a web video.
Software used was Live, Max for Live & VVVV

The Edge, Queensland’s digital culture center, held their relaunch this month after some down time to recover from Brisbane’s monster floods. They asked us if we could provide some visuals that would be fresh and new- so we came up with some fun augmented reality Kinect hacks.
If you’re in Brisbane, would like to play with these and missed out at the launch event, we will bringing it in again as part of the 2011 Ideas Festival. The installation will run all day 22 May @ The Edge. If you are interested in how it all works with this Kinect goodness we will also be presenting a ‘making of’ at 12pm the same day.
