Travelling through the past and present to define our future.
Italian culture along with art, architecture, music and food have made Italy great in the eyes of the rest of the world. Have you ever wondered how these masterpieces from the past have shaped today’s present, and how they can continue to be a source of inspiration in the future?

Three hundred years ago, Italy’s “Grand Tour” was a journey made mainly by wealthy young people to experience the beauties and artwork of Italian cities and culture to find that inspiration that revolutionised the modern world. Today Google re-invent it and made for everyone.

Watch with anaglyph 3D glasses!
red = left eye
cyan = right eye

There should be an option to watch on Google Cardboard when on mobile.
Side by Side version for 3D TV / VR Headsets / etc.: https://youtu.be/q1cc-bEXkTs
Original track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KDek…

What you see is what you hear: The audio signal is fed into a software oscilloscope, where vector graphics are drawn with sound. This is done twice, with slightly rotated images for each eye, i.e. four audio channels have been used.

channel 1: horizontal deflection, left eye
channel 2: vertical deflection, left eye
channel 3: horizontal deflection, right eye
channel 4: vertical deflection, right eye

This video is in stereo because YouTube doesn’t support 4-channel audio, but you can download all the WAVs from http://oscilloscopemusic.com (album download now includes the 4-channel WAV, existing download codes still work!) or https://jerobeamfenderson.bandcamp.co… (2 stereo WAVs).

Major thanks to https://www.youtube.com/hansiraber for all the crazy software!

Software Oscilloscope this video was rendered with: http://asdfg.me/osci (now supports 4-channel audio / stereoscopic 3D :))

Transcript – One of the interesting things about healthcare today is the data is becoming unsiloed and increasingly accessible. So for example, I’m wearing right now a little patch from a company called Vital Connect underneath my shirt. It’s talking to my smartphone live. And I can look at a dashboard of my data from my full on EKG, which will show up right here and it can track the trends and hopefully my EKG looks like it’s okay, if there are any cardiologist out there. I can also see data about my steps, my stress level, my position. If I fall down and I don’t get back up, the system can tell that. And this is really an intensive care unit like type level data in what will be less than five dollar a day disposable patch, which can be useful if you’re training for a marathon; if you’re in a hospital and you’re not on a monitored bed; if your home with a disease like heart failure. That’s a lot of data. We need to learn to sift through it and pull out the signals because no physician or nurse is going to want to be liable for watching your life streaming EKG. But is an immense amount of power and data. And we’re in this era now of creating digital health exhaust, whether it’s my smart watch, this patch, my phone, it can tell a lot about me, my behaviors. If, for example, you have a patient who’s got bipolar disorder, you can tell from their phone whether they’re depressed or they’re manic. That can play a role in smart disease, disease management. We can take technologies like 3-D printing and tune home-based prosthetics. We can print prosthetic hands for folks and legs in the developing world. Here’s mini me in my pocket. It’s a 3-D printed version of me. That might be interesting if I need to make a prosthetic for someone who has lost part of her face. Or I was at MIT Media Lab last week and met a young grad student who diagnosed his own brain cancer, written up in the New York Times, and used 3-D printing to print a version of his tumor.

How 3D holograms work

 

By: Physics Girl

Originally published on Sep 15, 2015

Holograms are photographic recordings of 3D scenes. Unlike a camera, which captures one view through a small viewer focused by a lens, holograms capture an entire light field which allows them to recreate the 3D scene. Shimmery 2D projections, like pre-recorded Pepper’s ghost illusion, are often confused with 3D holograms.

Is this really 3D?

 

By: Physics Girl

Originally published on Sep 8, 2015

3D movies and TV are is increasing in popularity, but is any of it truly 3D? How true is the 3D in movie theaters? How do glassess-less 3D TVs work? Try catching a ball with one eye closed. If you find it easy, try having the ball thrown a couple of feet in front of you, or from further away. It becomes increasingly difficult when the throw is off.

FREEZE! an adventure in 100 frames from Job, Joris & Marieke

FREEZE! an adventure in 100 frames from Job, Joris & Marieke on Vimeo.

We made this short loop as part of a 3D printed installation. We 3D printed this entire sequence, frame by frame. For more pictures of the actual installation, visit our website (jobjorisenmarieke.nl) or look at the bottom right of this page.

In a room that looks like our studio, a character emerges from a piece of paper and runs over a table like a madman. He breaks a few things on the table and eventually he jumps into a preserving jar on a shelf. No one knows why he’s in such a rush. All we know is that he doesn’t want to be recognized…

The whole animation is made in CGI, and we used a 3D printer to print each frame. The result is a weird string of characters in different poses. This explains the principles of animation beautifully, without a single bit actually moving. It is a static installation: a frozen movement. If you look closely, you can figure out what happened on that table.

We made the installation for the exhibition MOVE ON…! about animation in Kunsthal KAdE, in the Netherlands. It can be seem until May 10th.
