iPad Controlled Blimp [iPad, openFrameworks]

This year's Design Week after-party featured a silent auction of 23 KidRobot Munny characters created by the world's top industrial designers. To show off these creations to the thousand guests, Breakfast created a 52" camera-enabled blimp to fly over guests' heads. The blimp (a modified BlimpDuino) was controlled by an iPad which was receiving the live video-feed from the cockpit. When guests looked up, they watched as their faces were transformed into those of the Munny characters up for auction. The feed also went up on a big screen at the event and the event's site (by Profero) allowing everyone to get in on the action. See video below.
