Summary

We developed the mobile application of the first volume of the Voyages fantastiques de Téo et Léonie : Le Collier Magique, an audio book telling their adventures and allowing to discover in 3D the different inventions of Leonardo da Vinci throughout the narrative.

This free version of the Teo et Leonie application uses augmented reality technology to discover exclusive content in this first volume read by Benoit Allemane, the famous French voice of Morgan Freeman.

The application is available for download on Google Play and App Store.

Summary

Experience 49 legendary musical moments like you have never seen or heard them before.

The immersive video jukebox developed in collaboration with EPFL allows users to interact naturally with a broad range of audio and visual content. User gestures are tracked by a motion capture system, sonified in real time, and used as a controller to navigate the best moments of the Montreux Jazz Festival digital concert archive.

The video jukebox was installed next to the entrance of Auditorium Stravinski during the Montreux Jazz Festival 2015.

Summary

3D In Motion (3DIM) is a system of capture, visualization and sonification of movements in real time. This experimental setup allows to create and control 3D graphics in real time with the entire body, as well as to generate sounds from the body motion. The user’s movements are tracked by a motion capture system (Vicon, Xsens or Kinect) and instantaneously converted into sound events and graphic content, which allows you for instance to sculpt in 3D with your body. Your movements are thus transformed into an interactive instrument while immersed in a surround sound environment.

This framework is dedicated to the scene and to real time performances. It can be used for DJ nights, dance performances or other artistic projects. The interaction can be done alone or with others.
