Mapping Festival, first shots

From the 8th to the 17th of may, the mapping festival invades some of the cultural places of Geneva.
This great event allow us to discover, and sometimes experience, lots of nice “stuff”.
This year, there was the reactable, an amazing multitouch table.
The UI and performance are really sweet.
The first purpose of this apparel isn’t being a nice multitouch table. It’s a music instrument, able to produce a lot of different sounds, from different sources, parsed by many filters.

I think they made a really nice work. We were both astonished by the demo. And in the same time excited about our current project.

Very entertaining…

Later in the night, I dropped by the Usine, more specifically le zoo, to watch the VJ battle. To say the truth, it was boring before the crew I know started the show ! Look at the picture, two Disco-Saint-Nicolas landing directly from the 80’s.

The day after was a sunday. I quickly went to module8 workshop. It was interesting, I’d love to try it now. And I’d like to try something like a midi-theremin with it. Maybe the Disco-Saint-Nicolas from the 80’s would be interested in being my guinea pig (direct translation of “cobaye” with my aïPhone).

My advice: Enjoy the mapping.
