I bought 20 of these huge sheets so we should be able to create a beast of an installation with them :) I guess the only limitation is how many projectors we can get, and the maximum pixel area that we can display...

Comment on Rear Projection for Misers Part 2. by Jordan http://blog.emocapsule.com/?p=60#comment-30 Jordan Tue, 28 Aug 2007 11:46:06 +0000 http://blog.emocapsule.com/?p=60#comment-30 Hannah, is the projector inside of the bin and back projecting on the cloth? I like the idea of the cloth much more than the waxpaper for the reasons you mentioned above; Easly transportable and durable.

Comment on And another thing.. by Eric http://blog.emocapsule.com/?p=55#comment-28 Eric Mon, 13 Aug 2007 19:38:35 +0000 http://blog.emocapsule.com/?p=55#comment-28 Hannah, that is an excellent idea. I was just thinking the same lines as u. We could use the walls as display visual information of specific poses to activate the emotions! If we go with that route, then we don't need users to log into some terminal and type "how do you feel today?"...which is kinda inefficient. For sure Arduino would be cool to use in this project too - I'm going to pick myself up one. I'm goin to quickly sketch what I mean by displaying information on the walls and post it up soon.

I think a meeting is in order too, but we should maybe try to think of a better method than msn. Even the blog seems easier to get ideas across.. Thoughts? Anyone? I agree.

Comment on My hands smell like wax by Hannah http://blog.emocapsule.com/?p=49#comment-24 Hannah Wed, 01 Aug 2007 16:16:31 +0000 http://blog.emocapsule.com/?p=49#comment-24 I think that if we're going to be presenting it in the huge space in Unicentre, we'll have to get creative. In particular, I'm thinking about ways to block light out. The darker it is, the cooler the rear-projection is. Ideally, we'd have a showing at night in there and then maybe in just a regular classroom during the day. Either way, the more transportable the better. This all being said, I don't know how well the video tracking will work in such low-light conditions. Something else to test...

Comment on My hands smell like wax by Alicia http://blog.emocapsule.com/?p=49#comment-23 Alicia Wed, 01 Aug 2007 15:03:54 +0000 http://blog.emocapsule.com/?p=49#comment-23 Dear Hannah, That last comment is my favourite. I will admit this looks more amazing than I ever expected and as long as we have access to a number of projectors I think the possibilites are endless. Now we just need to come up with some kind of framing system. The lightest thing to use would be wire or balsa wood, and then is we were using a controlled room , we could just supend the screens from the ceiling on wires.... that would work alright. Otherwise we are going to need to develop entire frame sets which will be a little harder. Dear Hannah,

Comment on Gesture and Affect Recognition in Music by Hannah http://blog.emocapsule.com/?p=48#comment-22 Hannah Tue, 31 Jul 2007 20:17:34 +0000 http://blog.emocapsule.com/?p=48#comment-22 I found another gesture dictionary (or so it was called) elsewhere. I'll try to see if I can find the link again. This might be useful even if we decide against user-body-gesture input -- It could instead be used to give the moving text "gesture-like" characteristics, if that makes any sense?

I think it would be a good idea to find a more controlled and less definition "interactive" way to get input from the users. I think the link you posted has some amazing stuff, and has the potential to make our project amazing. I would honestly do whatever it took to make that happen, I think it would be mind blowing to duplicate/replicate the "Text Rain" Exhibit, and to make matters more interesting I will attempt to see it when I am in barcelona this summer if its still on exhibition. I think the inverted shadow and light graffiti from the user path would be amazing..... there is soo much potential in what you have posted. And for sure, developing a cleaner more cohesive presentation will be the key to our success or failure. Hannah,
