Google Creative Lab invited Hirsch & Mann to collaborate with We Like Today to create a connected workshop space that combined the get your hands dirty style of old with the futuristic concept of a web connected space that streamed activity live on Google+.
I was responsible for developing a couple of the experiences in the space using OpenFrameworks as per specifications:
- The GIF Booth: the hacked turntable turned pedestal for amazingly hacked Chucks which took 360 gifs and uploaded them to Google+
- The LED Ticker: displaying curated Google+ and Twitter tagged messaged on awesomely bright LED panels (2560 LEDs at 1318.5Mb/s)
Special thanks to Alex Stanbury for his Objective-C / Google App Engine experience and Mike Vanis for electronics consulting
