Fracture.io – openFrameworks and Unity for realtime body sculptures

Created by MPC Digital and The One Club, Fracture.io is an installation experience for The One Show’s lavish after party at NYC’s Bowery Hotel. Fracture.io allowed guests to “enter the digital space”, taking 3D scans of pose-striking partygoers to generate beautifully abstracted, full body 3D renderings.

Skeleton / Self-portrait 21

In this project, Self-portrait 21, the 3D copy of the skull represents the true image (vera icon). This image has formed the basis for a facial reconstruction by a forensic anthropologist, who received the skull anonymously accompanied only by the information that it belonged to a man in his mid-40s born in Western Europe.

Microsonic Landscapes: What Music Looks Like in 3D

What would your favorite album look like in three dimensions? Mexico City-based research and experimentation studio Realität proposes “a new spatial and unique journey” by transforming the sounds of five albums into physical matter. ‘Microsonic Landscapes’ translate sound waves into 3D-printed visualizations that resemble circular cityscapes, mountain ranges or volcanic craters.

Echolocation: early tests

Made with Cinder and a Kinect sensor.
Using microphone input to create a 3D ripple through space which distorts the geometry and colors it as it passes. Video coming soon.

NICT Daedalus: 3D Real-Time Cyber-Attack Alert Visualization

3D real-time graphics, rapidly moving particles and dangerous cyber attacks: it is all there.
The visualization system is called the “NICT Daedalus Cyber-attack alert system”, where Daedalus stands for “Direct Alert Environment for Darknet and Livenet Unified Security.” The system is specifically developed to observe large groups of computers for any suspicious activity, as it visualizes any suspected activity as it moves through the network.

ZeroN slips surly bonds, re-runs your 3D gestures in mid-air

Playback of 3D motion capture with a computer is nothing new, but how about with a solid levitating object? MIT’s Media Lab has developed ZeroN, a large magnet and 3D actuator, which can fly an “interaction element” (aka ball bearing) and control its position in space. You can also bump it to and fro yourself, with everything scanned and recorded, and then have real-life, gravity-defying playback showing planetary motion or virtual cameras, for example.

The wreck of the Titanic in 3D in Google Earth

Yesterday we showed you how to view the voyage of the Titanic in Google Earth and today we’re going to look at how to view a 3D model of the underwater wreckage.

When Google Earth 5 was released three years ago, it included the new ocean features with undersea terrain. As part of that, Google built a 3D model of the wreck of the Titanic and put it at the bottom of the ocean where it lies today. You can view that model by loading this KML file — be sure to have the “3D Buildings” layer turned on.
