Projection Mapping Painting with the Touch Board

Jesse James Allen and Charlie Jicha are co-workers at Falcon’s Creative Group, a themed experience design company based Orlando Florida.

Over the past summer, the two had been exploring new and tactile interactive solutions and were intrigued by the product offerings from Bare Conductive.

The Touch Board acted as a MIDI controller, sending program change data as symbols in the book were touched. The Unity game engine drove the interactive graphics via the Leap Motion Controller, while HeavyM Live ran all the audio interactivity and projection mapping for the physical sculpture.

The book controller was connected to a powerful MSI gaming laptop that ran the projection mapping show.  Touching one of the painted symbols in the book would trigger a different visual story that could be further influenced by speech or gesture inputs to change the colours and patterns on “The Seraph”.

The following video for ”The Seraph” gives a behind the scenes look at the development process before it premiered.

The Seraph’s debut at Immerse was very positive, with at least several hundred people experiencing its unique interactivity across the two-day event. Allen adds, “Bare Conductive technology really made a huge impact on this project. It gave our audiences the ability to physically connect with the art and it was obvious by their reactions that was a powerful way for them to experience interactivity.”
