Contours

Created by: Pehr Hovey

Contours is an interactive projection which translates complex motions into simple outline shapes and forms. As the user approaches a mysterious black obelisk in the center of the room (housing the technical components), it senses their movement and renders an avatar on the wall with a brilliant green laser. Participants will naturally begin to make larger gestures with their bodies for the elegant reward of watching the laser impersonate their every move.

When the rock band OK Go, famous for their viral videos including the spectacular and award winning “treadmills video“, wanted to feature a 4-minute long Rube Goldberg Machine in an upcoming video, they tapped Syyn Labs to build it.

The requirements were that it had to be interesting, not “overbuilt” or too technology-heavy, and easy to follow. The machine also had to be built on a shoestring budget, synchronize with beats and lyrics in the music and end on time over a 3.5 minute song, play a part of the song, and be filmed in one shot. To make things more challenging still, the space chosen was divided into two floors and the machine would use both.

We had our work cut out for us; every facet of Syyn Labs’ expertise was required to meet this tremendous challenge. See the results of this remarkable effort in the video embedded above.
