Non Human Devices

Set of interactive installations manipulating found ‘alien’ projected objects with gesture controls. The ‘objects’ are ‘alleged’ to be discovered by a cosmonaut ‘chimp’ who in 1969 went on a mission and never came back (????!?!?!?) - videos embedded below:

During a recent exploration to Kepler22b, an exoplanet from the Kepler-16 binary star system, Boris Chimp 504 found some metallic objects on its surface. Though the origin of this object is totally unknown, it’s probably a piece of technology from an extraterrestrial civilization. Boris has sent this object in an hyperspace capsule to the Vladivostok Space Center, on Earth. 

It is believed that it’s a part of a machine, a mechanism or a device of some kind. Recent investigations on the object lead to believe that it is an interface to control the position and orientation in space and time of something bigger, a spaceship maybe. 
The device responds to touch, and generates an electric magnetic field that interferes with audiovisual signals and causes space-time distortions. 

In this public installation, the audience will have the opportunity to interact with this “Non Human-Machine Device”, and experience the effects that it causes to audiovisual signals and space-time orientation.

Turning Mobile Phones into 3D Scanners

Demonstration from the Computer Vision and Geometry Lab (part of ETH Zurich) of an unreleased app which can capture 3D data with a mobile phone camera without the aid of a depth sensor. Video embedded below:

There is no documentation currently available online, but it appears that data generation occurs both in-phone and with the assistance of data-connection, as well as being exportable.
