DAZZLE Animation Update

DAZZLE Programming Underway

A quick glance over the shoulder of our Dazzle programming wizard Ivan Cruz as he prepares various animations to be mapped onto the building.  Ivan has used Processing to create a complex model of the airport facade, onto which he can map video loops created in After Effects. This model produces JSON files that are sent to a Pixel Coordinator PC with remote access, which in turn sends a signal to an array of wireless transmitters that control each of the 2100 tiles. Easy, right?

As new animations are being created, Ivan stores them into an open-ended data base. The animations are categorized by visual intensity and tile switch rates to fit various moods and ambient conditions on location, like weather, traffic, and airport activity.

News from the Construction Site

Three months into the onsite stress testing of the first-generation prototypes, the 25 autonomous E Ink pixels are holding up well and have delivered valuable insights for further weather proofing. Late July we will extend the testing to about 200 units of the next generation pixels, which will also allow us to test some actual animations. Stay tuned as the world’s largest application of E Ink Prism™ film is taking shape.
