Hacking our way

Tim Pritlove's picture

This weekend we have started to roll out our material for Stereoscope into the floors of Toronto City Hall. Tons of little clips, cover sheets, metal poles and of course lamps. Right now we are not running into any major problems so we are confident we'll be able to start testing sometime next week leaving us some room for optimization before the final showdown at Nuit Blanche at October 4th, 2008.

Martin and DominikMartin and DominikMeanwhile our team is hacking along continuously adding new features and functionality to the software. We are happy to announce that version 1.0 of our iPhone Simulator has been readied and was submitted to the iTunes App Store for approval. So when things go well you might have access to this lovely tool on your devices soon. Kudos and lots of thanks to Dominik and Martin (aka the Coding Monkeys) who have joined Project Blinkenllghts for this endeavor.

Andrew and DanAndrew and DanAlso pretty busy is our Canadian team (Andrew, Dan and Jonathan) who only recently joined forces and hacked away tons of code since. They are fine tuning the new subsystem they created enabling the new mixing and overlaying functionality of Stereoscope you will soon be able to experience. They are also busy readying the new telephone subsystem moving our once ISDN-based telephony interface to Voice-over-IP giving us even more freedom how to interface to your mobile phone to Stereoscope to play games on screen.

We are looking forward to most of the rest of the team to arrive on Monday evening. We will then make some final decisions on how you all can contribute content for Stereoscope. We keep you posted on any further developments. Stay subscribed and tell your friends about this project. If you live in Toronto and want to join forces or offer any kind of co-operation, let us know. Stereoscope is an open platform and is all about participation and collaboration. And it's coming to a very big screen near you soon!

Introducing Stereoscope

Toronto City Hall

We have been quite pretty silent on our upcoming activities while we were busy drafting a plan and starting production for our third and up til now largest interactive light installation about to take place this October in Toronto, Canada: Stereoscope.

Stereoscope is our next step in interactive media art facilitating buildings to reclaim public space for the masses in an urban context. Targeting the Toronto City Hall in downtown Toronto we are about to build a Blinkenlights-style installation that dwarfs the former project in scale and complexity.

Adressing 960 windows in total and using newly developed innovative wireless light control technology, Project Blinkenlights is about to transform Toronto's city center around Nathan Philips Square into a luminescent maelstrom inviting people to play and interact in new ways.

Bear with us while we are preparing the extensive pre-event documentation covering all aspects of our activity. As usual, we did not have much time in developing the project and its technology. So a lot if details are still in the works and we will disclose certain aspects of Stereoscope once we know how exactly they will come to life and will be presented to you.
