Video Coat

Video Coat

Postby nixiebunny » Thu Jul 14, 2011 10:28 am

I just built this nifty little gadget, a video screen that's a jacket. I'll be running it every night that I can manage to while I'm there this year. Look for it on the playa.

Request: Got any cool videos that would look good on a person-sized video display? Abstract is good.
It plays them on an iPod, 320x240 resolution, color.

There's so much potential with that! Can it react to sounds? Like the visual setting on a audio player?

That is one of the coolest looking garments I've ever seen.

Is it as uncomfortable to wear as it looks?

I imagine he could make it do just about anything he wanted it to do! From reading about it, it looks like he's already got over $20,000.00 invested into making it. (And hey, what good is playing a video if it doesn't have sound?) :D :oops:

Amazing

You might get video ideas from the Sri Lankan displays for Nessa, the festival of light.

Thats awesome!

you want any content? I'd love to make some video's for your coat. shoot me PM, give me the specs (resolution file format, codec)


Also have you thought about using an iphone running a VJ app instead of the ipod. With a VJ app in control you could mix vid's and even have sound reactive stuff. there a re a few VJ apps in the app store, check out ivj, tappr.TV, i've used both and they work pretty good. just search VJ in the app store.

Excellent project, congrats (and good luck)! I can't think of anything specific offhand, but I'd recommend either doing something abstract or maybe use cool nature or space footage.
