On a rare occasion, instead of posting code and experiments, I like to post some things I’ve done at my job. Especially when it illustrates a practical use of some of my earlier experiments. So here we go!
For a project for the University of Ghent at Nascom (via Saatchi & Saatchi), I had to create a front-end application to be displayed on a big 12m² billboard, placed in Ghent. Without going into too much detail of the whole concept (which you can read at the official blogpost), it consisted out of a set of mini-applications allowing people to text mobile messages and interact with the display (show messages, a poll, …). being all booked up, I had to sacrifice some free time to be able to work on it. The reason I did was the same reason I decided to use Flash Player 10: a perfect excuse to work on the earlier 2D cloth simulation and turn it into stage curtains on a whopper public screen. Blatant self-exposure? Nah :p
Below, you can see a video recording showing it in action. The curtains open up after someone sends a text to the service, showing a random picture or video. Apologies for the low quality, all we had was a photo camera, and led lights don’t like to be filmed
Thanks to Jan Nikolaas Gijsen for editing the video! And I promise, this will be the last cloth-related post – at least for some timeLeave a comment (2 comments)
