The Technology Studio connected a Kinect sensor/camera to a Pufferfish round video screen and created their own animated Eye of Sauron that follows you around the room.
Kinect & Pufferfish Eye of Sauron
(via Super Punch)
Of all the PJ transgressions, the floating eyeball was the most egregious..
We’re coming close to the Leota-bot PSA (personal satellite assistant) I’ve imagined.
I think they meant to say Palantir of Orthanc…
Fool of a Took!
WIN. Thread’s over.
It’s neat, but I kind of wish the eye were properly animated and not just a still.
Yeah, I feel the same way.
What The Technology Studio is very nice, but I miss the streaming fire emanating from the iris, or however it should more properly be anatomically described.
Where can one buy this “pufferfish” round screen?
g-clef is right – if my experience was anything to go by they’re insanely expensive and require a ton of proprietary software to get fairly simple projections to work.
I’m not impressed. Try reproducing the left hip of Sauron.
Apparently they’re a UK thing:
There’s no purchase link on their site that I can find, which makes me think it’s one of those “if you have to ask how much, you can’t afford it” products.
