Inspired by the detection avoidance, or stealth technology, was one of many â€˜developmentsâ€™ to emerge from the Cold War, The Stealth Project is a installation byÂ Squidsoup whichÂ explores the creative possibilities of volumetric (or 3D) visualisation techniques, and nontactile 3-dimensional interaction.
In the Stealth project, two grids of triggers target and launch missiles across an abstracted 3D space at each other, attempting to avoid radar detection and annihilate the opposition.
The project usesÂ NOVA, the worldâ€™s first full-colour real 3D LED (light emitting diodes) video screen, was conceived to visualize scientific data dynamically in three dimensions. NOVA is modular and expandable â€“ a NOVA system installed at Zurichâ€™s main train measures 5 x 5 x 1m and consists of 25,000 points of light in 3D space. See flash demo of NOVA systems.
The Stealth ProjectÂ also uses 2xÂ Monome 64 devices as control interfaces.
