I was asked by Facebook to implement interactive elements for Facebook's annual F8 Developers Conference held in San Francisco. July 23rd.
The concept was user generated content, much like the site itself.
We brought on board the photoboof guys for streaming photos from the boof! to the large screen in the center of the room. The feed was also sent wirelessly to the VJ station where we mixed the photoboof! stream with a roaming photographer who was also sending me wireless streams of photos from around the venue. Added to that was a Processing app built by Wayne (www.cardboardcubicles.com). The app was capable of taking text messages, twitter-like text updates and displaying them with a sound reactive component that went live to all the screens in the Hackathon area. This project was called, f8 Feed" and it was a great way for guest to announce the projects they were working on, shout outs to friends and general announcements. The app was could be controlled by key commands or the Griffin Powermate.
On the audio side we integrated Moldover's Octamaher
This allowed guest to collectively create their own mashups on 8 customized midi keyboards.
In addition to interactive elements I installed a signature VJ Culture piece and VJ'd live before Thievery Corp performed.
Special thanks to Sean Cooper for install and VJing.
