SPECTRA was a groundbreaking app that used 3D data from a Google Tango-equipped smartphone to make art – unlocking a type of creativity previously limited to a small group of elite creative coders and making it as accessible as Instagram. This is a new kind of photography – one that uses shape and 3D position instead of RGB pixels – with results that are abstract, ethereal, and undeniably unique.
Intel has launched a campaign to celebrate interactive projects that leverage their groundbreaking RealSense cameras to demonstrate the creative capabilities this technology unlocks. One of the featured pieces, directed by Mirada’s Andrew Cochrane, is an interactive dance performance involving a precise mix of creative realtime effects and custom programming.
Intel just posted a big article with a ton of backstory and information on Paige Fraser, our dancer for the RealSense Dancer project that we created for CES and an anthem commercial. This interview includes a much deeper backstory on Paige’s struggle with scoliosis, which formed the basis for the choreography and the visuals.
