We have created a performance piece, utilizing 24 autonomous drones, quadcopters, flying close to and around the performers body like a flock of trained birds.
We are exploring the intersection of AR and VR in ab audience interactive 2 minute digital eyewear experience. A collaboration with the Qualcomm Inventor lab
For this project, we have built trajectory timeline composition software, a static/dynamic behavior system, a face animation library and pose tree system to transition between expressions, a sympathetic interface to an industrial robot, and custom hardware to achieve magic effects to be used in a live magic-robot performance.
An exploration into new interaction paradigms with the HP Sprout Blended Reality computing platform.
Marco Tempest spins a beautiful story of what magic is, how it entertains us and how it highlights our humanity — all while working extraordinary illusions with his hands and an augmented reality machine.
Using sleight-of-hand techniques and charming storytelling, illusionist Marco Tempest brings a jaunty stick figure to life onstage.
Combining projection mapping and a pop-up book, Marco Tempest tells the visually arresting story of Nikola Tesla — called “the greatest geek who ever lived” — from his triumphant invention of alternating current to his penniless last days.
The suits, numbers and colors in a deck of cards correspond to the seasons, moon cycles and calendar. Marco Tempest straps on augmented reality goggles and does a card trick like you’ve never seen before, weaving a lyrical tale as he deals. (This version fixes a glitch in the original performance, but is otherwise exactly as seen live by the TEDGlobal audience, including the dazzling augmented reality effects.)
