Projection Mapping with the Raspberry Pi April
Sat, Apr 22, 2017, 10:00 AM – Sun, Apr 23, 2017, 5:00 PM CEST
Learn to create compact projection mapping installations with Raspberry Pi and openFrameworks. During this two-day workshop you will learn how to set up the Raspberry Pi, use it to build your projection mapping project, back it up and restore it if needed. Advanced topics, such as preparing and cloning SD cards, autostart, custom generative sources, networking and projector blending will be covered. Limited amount of projectors and Raspberry Pi's will be available at the venue.
Have you ever set up a permanent projection mapping installation and did not want to leave your personal computer at the venue? You would like to make ten projection mapping objects, but your budget is too low to buy Mac Pro's? Using plain video sources seem too old-school and you want to map something that is real-time? You want to make your setup compact? If this sounds familiar, this workshop is for you.
OfxPiMapper is open source projection mapping software, an addon for the openFrameworks creative coding toolkit (openframeworks.cc), it runs on the Raspberry Pi (raspberrypi.org). Raspberry Pi is an affordable pocket-size mini-computer developed in the UK for teaching basic computing in schools. Nevertheless it has became popular among makers, designers and artists because of it's price and power.
