Blind Spot is an interactive installation that was installed at Beakerhead 2013 in Calgary, AB. It is a large showcase with car inside, surrounded on all sides by 96 motorized louvres. The louvres in front of a visitor close when they approach to look inside, and open up again when they step away.
I designed and built this project. It was my first major installation. A few friends helped with some of the construction and a bunch of volunteers helped me assemble it on site. There is a PC inside running Processing, which is doing some simple computer vision of six wide-angle webcams. Processing is controlling 96 small servos (one for each louvre) through an Arduino.
A great friend of mine made the awesome video, which does a great job of capturing people's reactions from the main event night. The images are selections from the construction and prototyping.
