The mathematics behind particles systems is something that most people can only dream of doing. But once the particle tool is made, the fun can begin for us mere mortals. The latest demos from the studio's research and development lab have been created using David Morasz'snew particle system that will soon be open sourced.Read More
How long will it be before people see the benefit of microchipping themselves? Inserting a microchip into a human is still seen as a step too far for privacy, even for the average Facebook user. I suspect this is because there are still no obvious benefits of being easily identifiable. Maybe that will change as a market place for the less invasive NFC "tattoo" or eTattoo emerges.

We are often asked to make impossible sounding installations possible, we do this through a combination of knowledge, detailed research, and agile development. We can quickly find out if an installation is possible or if subtle changes are required to turn it into a reality. Once we've decided an installation is feasible, we plan the best processes, then trial prototypes and finally, develop the system.Read More
A key metric of a successful marketing experience is its reach. How many people experienced it first hand? How many shared it online? How many people re-shared it?

IronHydra is our latest release for the Open Source community. It allows developers to run Python scripts or entire programs asynchronously and multi-threaded in vvvv. Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world, it is used in websites, robotics and everything in between. vvvv on the other hand is tailored towards installations and high performance real-time motion graphics. Having the power of Python embedded in vvvv opens up a lot of possibilities.Read More
The cinematic effects are rendered real-time in an open-source motion graphics engine called Emeshe. The landscape demo has interactively such as Depth of Field with Bokeh blur, Automatic Color Grading (or Tonemapping), Motion Blur and Glare. The tree is procedurally animated with a specific bone structure to emulate wind, fundamentally the same technique used in 3D character animations.
As our lives become more process driven 4D design can help to make our experience feel natural.Read More
