Last month I attended a talk about electroacoustic composition made with visual graphics.
The sound artist Derek Holzer played live experimental sounds, as well as taught in diferrent workshops about noise art technology.
This conference is part of “Radio Sonores” (3 weeks of events at Fábrica ASA Curators’ Lab in Guimaraes 2012).
«TONEWHEELS is an experiment in converting graphical imagery to sound, inspired by some of the pioneering 20th Century electronic music inventions. Transparent tonewheels with repeating patterns are spun over light-sensitive electronic circuitry to produce sound and light pulsations and textures. This all-analog set is performed entirely live without the use of computers, using only overhead projectors as light source, performance interface and audience display.»
Back on the great idea and concept to resume the system of the PlayStation Move and mapping techniques to create videos “Immersive Movie Experience.”
Using live puppetry, 3D tracking, pyrotechnics (and a whole bunch of our friends’ spare time) The Found Collective transformed a room into three different vignettes.
In the past, projection mapping worked only from a single, static view point, and thus was very limited. By attaching the PlayStation Move to the camera, we can track projections to screens in real time, enhancing the effect of spatial deformation and false perspective on the projections and allowing viewers to look round (virtual) corners, bend walls, create a hole in the wall, or remove the walls altogether to reveal vast expanses of virtual worlds.
Check out this guy’s room totally change into the movie he is watching! No SFX, no post production, no cuts, everything you see here is 100% for real.

This holiday season eBay and Toys for Tots have teamed up to launch the Give-A-Toy Store: an interactive toy store that lets you “window shop for good”.
eBay’s latest innovation makes it easy for shoppers to donate joy – and toys – via their mobile devices. The holiday storefronts benefit Toys for Tots and feature interactive displays of popular toys such as teddy bears and trains that represent donation amounts from $2 to $25.
This initiative provides joy and a message of hope to economically disadvantaged children through the gift of a new toy.

“While you sketch on paper, your idea goes digital”
Wacom’s Inkling Captures What You Draw On Paper Digitally.
This so-called Digital Sketch Pen allows you to capture whatever you draw or write on a sketchbook or any kind of paper in digital form, “stroke by stroke”. Just insert a sheet of paper or a notebook into the receiver, use the Inkling Digital Pen and transfer your works to your computer to refine them digitally anytime later.
Wacom says that Inkling even lets users create layers in the digital file while sketching on paper, with the push of a button.
Works can be stored as JPEG, BMP, TIFF, PNG, SVG and PDF files for use with any kind of application that supports these formats. The Inkling offers direct transfers to Photoshop, Illustrator, and Autodesk Sketchbook Pro/Designer.

The product, which relies on strict HTML standards and does not incorporate Flash, is not meant to replace existing web design tools like Dreamweaver or Flash, but to coexist with them, enhancing Adobe’s position as a leader in the future of Web infrastructure, especially as HTML5 becomes increasingly important in the world of mobile.
Look at the upcoming preview of Adobe Edge:
This application is not new in concept, destroying the contents of other sites, but this new way of programming is pretty interesting.
Basically, it consists on roll a ball across the page that collects the contents. This application make you control a ball that grows as you stroll through the page, adding images, words and all contents that exists on the road, like Katatmari game style.
