Instance Noodles Toolkit
Instance Noodles is our publicly released free vvvv library to quickly prototype visual applications that run on the ferocious power of modern graphics cards. It enables a hyper fast visual workflow for what’s known as GPGPU programming as well as modules that create and manipulate 3D geometry. In a nutshell GPGPU allows us to use the graphics card beyond it’s traditional role of drawing things to compute quite a few general algorithmic feats, and accomplish data wrangling that in many cases is orders of magnitude faster then traditional CPU based programming, particularly when dealing with massive arrays.
Who uses it?
After starting out as a research project, we now use it ourselves for most projects in-house (see most recently The Art Of Intelligence). It’s also been spotted in the wild being used by a pretty cool range of realtime graphics practitioners all over the world. Here’s some of our favorite to date:
Impressive Party visuals in Ibiza
Fulldome Shows in Montreal
Virtual Reality Touring Shows in Belgium/France/Germany/Czech Republic
Art Installations in Bratislava
Branding in Madrid
Crazy Code Art in London
+ at least two Masters Thesis that we know of
