Mission:CMS at the CERN

Posted in experimental, video mapping with tags , on March 26, 2012 by Francois Wunschel

We’ve been contacted by the CERN to make an interactive mapping at the Large Hadron Collider CMS detector facility.
It will be a good opportunity to put our latest particle engine in action … trying to simulate hadron collisions, at 99.9% of the speed of light.

Here are some pictures showing our almost-finished 3d model and a few particles.

Front view of our 3d model:

Detail view (notice the modeled electric wires):

BXL MadMapper workshop report

Posted in MadMapper, video mapping with tags , on November 25, 2011 by Francois Wunschel

Super-busy recently, I just took some time to make a proper report of our MadMapper workshop in Brussels.
It last for 2 days, with a collective presentation at the end.
The ceiling was perfect for video-mapping, with lots of details and industrial elements, so we decided to focus on it.
Here’s the final result:

MM + Mad_Line + Mad_Graphics:

We also had the time to teach the participants how to use the Space Scanner function, on a still life, composed of some fruits “borrowed” at the catering:

Closer view:

The resulting scan (notice how this technique is even able to capture the specular refexion on the fruits):

The mandatory cocktail performance (Computer-controlled mapped-blenders):

And we mapped our friend Mike:

Conclusion: it was a Mad workshop.

Some live patching and adjustments in the venue:

The virtual MC mapped on the main concrete pillar:
