ProjectElements Mandala by TEM.studio for Google What it is An immersive photo booth. Why we like it Multimedia photo booths have recently became a thing in entertainment and event industry. A new spin on regular press walls attracts event guests and allows creating wonderful, ever changing backdrops for photo ops. And these booths are becoming ever sophisticated. For example, this project features an interactive, generative, mandala-like background for visitors’ photos that can be instantly shared to social networks.
Project57° North for Merge Cube by Mighty Coconut What it is An adventure AR game played on an innovative storytelling device. Why we like it Merge Cube is a fun toy and at the same time an innovative AR ecosystem that empowers creators build their own augmented reality apps for this cube. The most interesting one is 57° North by Mighty Coconut. The creators found a way to make a simple object quite infinite. They used this cube to create a story on its surfaces, while user needs to turn it to make choices in this multiple-endings game.
ProjectIAMA Coin by Kevin Abosch What it is An artist’s exploration of blockchain. Why we like it Kevin Abosch created a blockchain token, drew six vials of his blood, and stamped the address of his token storage with his own blood, connecting his body to the ephemeral world of cryptocurrencies. This is his artistic method, as he explores the world of cryptocurrencies and blockchain.
ProjectBeat Saber What it is A VR light saber drummer simulator. Why we like it You put on VR goggles, take spatial joysticks — and next thing, you’re banging a beat on virtual targets with light sabers as drumsticks. It’s like Guitar Hero, but with lightsabers. Also look for videos with the Dart Maul version of the game. If that’s not ultracool, we sincerely don’t know what cool is.
ProjectAerobanquets RMX by Mattia Casalegno What it is A VR gastronomic experience. Why we like it This is a completely new level of gastronomiс experiences. While on-table projection mapping experiences augment plates with stories about recipes, serving food to customers sitting in VR goggles allows an absolutely different way of food storytelling. Immersive worlds of ingredients and gastronomic regions may possibly create a new experiential industry.
