Making stop-motion magic with the iPad

September 16, 2010

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.


How to make your own air graffiti photos/art using LED glowsticks.

August 6, 2008

Painting in the air… so much fun, cheap and easy to do. Here’s how: Now you can probably see my 3 year old daughter’s feet in the pic below whilst her big 6 year old brother manages to go a bit higher with the blue/yellow combo. I made this image on the weekend using colour changing LED glowsticks (you can get these on ebay or the address below) and a 6 second exposure (Nikon D70). I’ve since made a neat few wallpaper desktops with this effect (will post them later when I have a spare sec to edit them to the right size).
