Richti-Areal [MaxMSP, iPad]

Projektil, a Zurich based collective, created augmented reality installation which includes an architectural model in scale 1:200 with 5 projectors mapping various information affecting the proposal.

On the model can be shown various simulations (nightlife, sun and shadow, etc.), and also information (use zones, green areas, transport etc.) . Not only this installation is controlled interactivly by an ipad, but the whole space, which includes 44 dimmable dali lamps, 6 DMX lamps, 9 beamers, a touchscreen and the audio system.”

MaxMSP/Jitter was used for video together with iPad app which controls the max app over OSC. MeshWarpServer was used for realtime-meshwarping and all of the modeling, animation and rendering was made with Blender.

Elements of the installation include: architecture model scale 1 : 200, 1 ipad, 9 full HD beamers, 6 macminis, 5000 vertices to set, 40+ different animations and stills, 44 dimmable dali lamps, 6 DMX lamps and 1 touchscreen.
