unnamed-soundsculpture-2

by Daniel Franke and Cedric Kiefer:

The basic idea of the project is built upon the consideration of creating
a moving sculpture from the recorded motion data of a real person. For
our work we asked a dancer to visualize a musical piece (Kreukeltape by
Machinenfabriek) as closely as possible by movements of her body. She was
recorded by three depth cameras (Kinect), in which the intersection of the
images was later put together to a three-dimensional volume (3d point cloud),
so we were able to use the collected data throughout the further process.
The three-dimensional image allowed us a completely free handling of the
digital camera, without limitations of the perspective. The camera also reacts
to the sound and supports the physical imitation of the musical piece by the
performer. She moves to a noise field, where a simple modification of the
random seed can consistently create new versions of the video, each offering
a different composition of the recorded performance. The multi-dimensionality
of the sound sculpture is already contained in every movement of the dancer,
as the camera footage allows any imaginable perspective.

idea of the day: closed cockpit F1?

Well that’s interesting to wonder if F1 cars could ever be closed cockpit.  This rendering was done by Iacoski and apparently inspired by Massa’s accident in 2009 where he got nailed in the head by debris!

Whatever you think about it, the rendering is definitely nicely done and very interesting!  Something to think about…

2012 Alfa Romeo Giulia?

I loved the latest Alfa Giulietta when i was in Italy last week—it is beautiful and probably the best looking hatchback i’ve seen in recent memory….far better in person than any photo can do it justice.  Found this pic scattered across the web; obviously a low likelihood for ‘the truth’ since Autoxpress, the fine purveyors of automotive lying are behind it—–however it is an interesting rendering, and I think it looks quite nice.  As I mentioned in my post-Italy post….i think the Alfa 159 is a thing of utter beauty, so it is difficult to follow it up, but I think if the Giulia looked anything like this, it might be possible.

2012 Porsche 911. it looks different!?

Well it doesn’t look that different, but there are some significant styling differences noticeable from these spy pics posted on Motor Authority.


The front nose is definitely higher, and the headlights are more upright, reminiscent of older 911s (ding ding….points for Porsche already!).  Supposedly this is due to stricter EU pedestrian safety laws, but I like to think it’s due to taking the 911 back to its stylish roots!

I’m not sure what they are trying to do with the rear, and I get the feeling that the spoiler on this mule has been heavily camouflaged and subsequently distorted from the look it will have in production.  I think that ‘whale tale’ is to throw off the pundits, or is it? Time will tell.

Future Honda S2000?

 

The Honda S2000 is dead.  I’ve got a sneaking feeling that it WILL be back quite shortly, in altered and new form of course.  These are some interesting renderings from Grid/3dLuvr about a possible idea.  Note that they have a striking similarity to the outgoing model, however it’s all tweaked up with added styling cues.  Reminds me alog of the MB Gullwing that was debut’d recently…

rendering of a new Lancia Delta HF

luis_camino_lancia_delta_hf_render-02The original Lancia Delta Integrale was a beast of a car.  Obviously we never recieved it imported to the USA, so it was added to the mental list of “yes i want but i cannot have” and put aside into the closet.

Lately there’s been some talk of Chryslers being sold here as rebadged Lancia Deltas (see article http://www.motorauthority.com/blog/1036481_chrysler-lancia-to-share-products-delta-could-come-to-u-s ).

Could this mean that if a Delta Integrale or Delta HF is produced, then we might see one? Maybe as an ‘SRT’ model?  Dodge Delta HF?  Sounds funny i know…but it would be fantastic!

I can’t tell you what the article says, because i don’t know spanish.  But the photos are great!

Thanks to Colla Verglas for the info: http://collaverglas.net/2009/10/17/per-somiar-que-no-quedi-lancia-delta-hf-per-luis-camino/

Audi E-Tron Concept = 3rd Generation TT/R4?

So if you look at the pictures of the new Audi E-Tron concept, the car looks MUCH smaller than an R8.  It’s been described by some media as ‘wider and shorter than a Boxster”.  So is this the much rumoured debut of the Audi R4?

IT SEEMS LIKE IT IS!
