Sailing Digital Seas: Exquisite Audiovisual Etudes Made in a Free Game Engine
30 seconds or more 07 – Will I ever make it home? from Victor Morales on Vimeo.

Set to the music of Norway’s Pål Asle Pettersen, Victor Morales has created surreal digital landscapes made of textures that vibrate and transform in time to sound.

And he’s being quite prolific. Working primarily with Crytek’s CryENGINE game engine – now free for non-commercial use – he is producing one short film each day. He tells CDM the visual engine helps produce these rapidly:

It shows how powerful these video games engines are for the creation of strong visual material in very little time (each sequence takes me between 2 to 3 hours).

I have been using video games for live performance for over 7 years now and this project is just so I could see a “pallete” of sketches of my work.

The sound-reactive episodes connect audio to visuals by means of OpenSoundControl (OSC), using a plug-in for the environment by developer hendrikp, aka Hendrik Polczynski of Nuremberg. I think it’s easiest just to point at his whole repository full of awesomeness – this could tempt me to start using CryENGINE alone.

To watch the videos – 14 at this writing, and still growing – head to Vimeo:

Two of my favorite videos, each featuring Pål Asle Pettersen’s music.

Modelbuilder getting some play
Amanda Ghassaei: 3D printed record created with Modelbuilder

This made my week: Amanda Ghassaei posted an awesome Instructable showing how to use my Modelbuilder library to 3D print phonorecords (aka vinyl aka discs encoding sound signals – weird, I know.) Her post has gotten a lot of well-deserved press all over (from Boing Boing to The Verge), and you can find some sample STL files on Pirate Bay although currently there are no seeders for thosee torrents.

Ghassaei provides the code to try it for yourself, although without access to an Objet or a similar high-level 3D printer your mileage might vary. I suspect the process could be reproduced on a lo-fi printer like RepRap or Makerbot given some experimentation, although likely with a further loss of sound quality. If you want guaranteed success this Instructable detailing how to make discs for the Fisher Price toy record player might be of interest. The instructions describe using a CNC mill but the STL files should be easy enough to print on a Makerbot Replicator.

Modelbuilder is currently being upgraded to Processing 2.0 in time for the final release of Processing 2.0. My aim is to eliminate inconsistencies in the library in the process, so please email me (marius at mariuswatz dot com) with requests or bug reports.

Stereogranimator: transform historical stereographs from NYPL archives into animated gifs and 3d images
Above, "Dixon crossing Niagara below the Great Cantilever Bridge," U.S.A., 1895-1903. And you can make your own, with Stereogranimator, a new project from
NYPL Labs. Stereogranimator is " a tool for transforming historical stereographs from The New York Public Library's vast collections into shareable 3D web formats."

(thanks, Mikael Jorgensen!)

Trimensional for iPhone [App Of The Day]
3D? Terribly lame when it's tossed into devices as a bullet point feature. Making stuff in 3D yourself? Almost always cooler than you think. Trimensional for iPhone takes a picture of your face and maps your mug in a 3D model. You wouldn't think it but it's kinda creepy seeing your face in 3D. More »

Personal 3D Printing Sweatshop Costs Just $1,225 for MakerBot's Thing-O-Matic [Video]
They're calling it a revolution in 3D printing. I call it a revolution in laziness. Why else should we applaud the first 3D-printing machine that can print out various objects automatically, without buttons needing pressing inbetween? More »
