Latest Flash game from the inventive and prolific Pippin Bar (responsible for the 8-Bit ‘The Artist Is Present - Marina Abramovic’ and recently ‘Epic Sax Game’). Here, there is no change with the visual style, but is a series of challenges to make the perfect cup of coffee at the end of a hot date. It’s a knowing wink to the gaming controversy from GTA 3: San Andreas.
In the creator’s own words:
… in Hot Coffee all you do is actually make a cup of coffee, but in a highly suggestive and innuendo-fueled manner.
My work investigates the slippery intersection between the digital world and reality. Specifically, I am interested in how we experience nature through technology. When we see images of nature on TV or on a computer screen, we feel that we are seeing nature but we are really only seeing patterns of pixilated light
Rutt-Etra-Izer via Creative Applications
This is damn good - consider this the most interesting browser-based visual remix tool / toy you will see today:
Created by Felix Turner Rutt-Etra-Izer is a WebGL emulation of the classic Rutt-Etra video synthesizer. The demo replicates the Z-displacement, scanned-line look of the original, but does not attempt to replicate it’s full feature set.
The application allows you to drag and drop your own images, manipulate them and save the output. Images are generated by scanning the pixels of the input image from top to bottom, with scan-line separated by the ‘Line Separation’ amount. For each line generated, the z-position of the vertices is dependent on the brightness of the pixels.
(To run the demo you need the latest version of Chrome or Firefox)
Created with Three.js
More images generated by this demo in this Flickr set.
Felix also built an audio-reactive version with Processing (video here).
It is definitely worth trying out, which you can do so here
