Oblong at Eyeo Festival
Posted on 30 May 2012
We’re headed to Eyeo Festival next week in Minneapolis. Eyeo is a conference that brings together people working at the intersection of art, design, and technology to share ideas and learn how to build new things. John Underkoffler, Oblong’s Chief Scientist, will talk about the future of the Human Machine Interface and engineers and designers from Oblong will run our first Hello, Space hackathon, a lab session built to share a little slice of the g-speak platform with Eyeo attendees.
For the lab sessions, we’ve built a Processing library called substrate that supports building interactive applications that communicate with every person and every device in the room. We’ll use phones as spatially-aware input devices for pointing, photography, and gesture. Designers and engineers from Oblong will show a handful of multi-user interactions and code snippets from games and drawing tools, then help attendees create their own sketches. We’re looking forward to seeing what the Eyeo attendees can build with substrate.
