WiiSpray

About WiiSpray

The foundational basis for the project goes well beyond replacing real graffiti as an art form.  Moreover, WiiSpray
is to be seen as an interface to give graffiti a new virtual level surpassing tactile boundaries of the tangible world.

Within the system, there is a symbiosis of digital and analog as well as overcoming restrictions of distance and time.  An advantage of the system proves to possess a user-friendly design simple enough for children to use.  The virtual canvas allows the user to decide what is saved and what is discarded, all the while keeping the surrounding area clean and free of what otherwise would be a messy form of media.

The actual hardware tool of the artist – the spraying can – remains constant in its shape and
function and is a catalyst for this software supporting innovative computer interaction.  The self-explanatory program requires no previous knowledge or reference of a user’s manual.  This software allows users to make the game all their own, offering a wide
range of colors, interchangable caps, along with the possibility to incorporate the user’s personal photos, graphics, and backgrounds into the setting.

The WiiSpray provides a framework of different possibilities yet without any specifications on how to use it. Every user decides for themselves what his or her creative expressions might be.

WiiSpray is independent of platforms and is based on »Adobe Flash«,
a »WiiiSpray server« how is based on the »WiiFlash server«, and standard »Wii« technology.

WiiSpray, a technical experiment with a lot of potential for expansion and application.

Bull in a china shop, how ironic…

Posted in Other Stuff by tomgooday on April 28, 2009

You couldn’t write this…

A bull filmed rampaging around a supermarket after escaping from a cattle market has put a small town in the west of Ireland on the international map.

CCTV footage from the security cameras in Cummins’ SuperValu store in Ballinrobe, County Mayo, put on YouTube has been viewed by thousands of people around the world.

Residents’ relatives have been calling from as far afield as Sydney and Hong Kong to say they have seen it.

It was market day when the bull jumped out of the cattle ring and headed up the main street.

The supermarket owner John Cummins said today: “He got out of the mart about a kilometre away and galloped right up the town – past Tesco – turned left, then right and came straight into the front door.

“He went straight through the shop, out into the store, had a good look about, turned around and went straight out again. I could not believe my eyes.”

While Mr Cummins is laughing about it now, he said it could have been a very different story.

“It is a good news story but it could have been a bad news story, a pregnant woman could have been hurt, a child could have been hurt, anyone in the store. There could have been a lot of damage or there could have been damage to cars, thank goodness no one was injured.”

The film footage, put together from various CCTV camera’s in the store, shows the bull entering through the electronic double doors and racing to the rear of the store before, appropriately, a butcher tries to corral it with a shopping trolley. But the bull turned and charged at him.

Another camera showed the bull’s owner running into the store, then running out even faster when the beast decided to chase him.

Mr Cummins said: “No one can say we don’t have the freshest beef in my store – and we have full traceability!”

“It has been very, very busy the last few days with people coming in – it’s amazing the comments we have been getting.

“One customer said he had had a call from a relative in Sydney and another from a brother in Hong Kong.”.

Mr Cummins praised his staff for their calm reaction to the incident. “They were excellent.”

One staff member, Helen McDonnell, said: “I could smell the bull and when he was charging out again I never moved so fast in my life.”

The bull was later recaptured and returned to the cattle market.

Cool packaging designs..

CScout Japan points us to some innovative juice box designs that mimic the skin of the fruit inside, giving the consumer an instant visual cue as to the flavor of the juice. Designed by Naoto Fukasawa, the Takara Banana is the only one to go into production.
