Making stop-motion magic with the iPad

When a new bit of tech is released it’s always fun to see what crazy/creative new things people can do with it. Dentsu London, in collaboration with BERG have produced a short film exploring the idea of “Making future magic” using the iPad to “paint” 3D objects in the air and bring it all together with long-exposure photography.

Watch the video. They explain it better.

    I’ve got to admit I’m not a fan of this kind of thing. It reminds me of the typface they invented for the Toyota iQ: http://vimeo.com/5233789

    So they designed a typeface, got the car to drive the shapes of the typeface and then turned the motion paths of the car back into a typeface. Well woopty-f**king-do! You’ve just invented the worlds most pointlessly longwinded way of creating a font. Have yourself a banana.

    So these guys create a 3D animation, transfer that to an iPad, drag the iPad through the air in front of a camera on a long exposure, they then ‘extrude’ the animation as light in the air and put it back together again on another computer.

    Is strikes me there are better ways of rendering 3D animation.
