MadMapper has arrived. You can go ahead and go over to the MadMapper website, download the demo or buy it.
The full price is €299 and for those of you who already have Modul8 it is only €199. To get this deal all you have to do is log into the yourspace page and follow the instructions.
As mentioned before, MadMapper uses the Syphon framework, and this wonderful technology that allows for live video applications to share their output is available in Mac OS X 10.6 only.
Yesterday evening was the official launch event that took place as part of the MadMapping workshop and the ongoing Mapping Festival in Geneva, Switzerland, home of GarageCUBE and the legendary Le Zoo club.
Shown above is Frz of 1024 architecture triggering an array of DMX controlled blenders used for mixing the free cocktails distributed to all the attendees.
In the coming hours and days we will be updating and tweaking things with MadMapper, Modul8 and the MadMapper website. To discuss the MadMapper we have set up sections on the existing GarageCUBE forum.
The MadMapper is now in your hands. What will you do with it?
A long time Modul8 and mapping fanatic, Diez and his collective PARADIGM got a hold of a beta of MadMapper to augment their installation for a 5 hour dj set by Laurent Garnier.
It is a very simple but elegant approach that we will simply be seeing a lot more of once the MadMapper is released. A nice break from the monotony of seeing so many screens at 4:3 aspect ratio. The MadMapper will push everyone to get into starting to get physical with their work and create sculptures that they can augment with video.
A story from Andreas Apelqvist of Startsladd from Sweden spend their non-party hours at Filmpoint. Recently they were able to bring Modul8 into their production work with help from Mikael Werner (aka The Midi Thief). Andreas writes:
Volvo released their latest concept. This is big for Volvo since it’s the first time in years they have released a pure design concept. We were asked to do something for social media to be released as a teaser for before and after the launch. We decided to map the car. The time was critical. The construction of the car was finished the same day as we were supposed to do the recording, so we only had 3D renderings to work with when creating the first masks. With the help of Mikael we were ready in time.
Oddly enough I am in Stockholm for the next few days spending a little time on a side project before things really heat up.
