London 2012 Olympic Art Installation

The team and I just got back from running our interactive quantum mechanics art installation “danceroom Spectroscopy” as part of the London 2012 Olympic events! It was awesome! We put it in an immersive 360 degree projection dome (19 meter diameter). Professor Vader, our custom-built 12-core supercomputer (who also has 2048 graphics cores) managed to run seven 3d capture cameras and talk to six graphics outputs, meanwhile doing sonic analysis, graphics rendering, and solving equations of motion for 10,000 quantum particles – all in real-time!  We also ran a dance performance of Hidden Fields, which is the show that we’ve been developing using the danceroom Spectroscopy technology. Stay tuned for some video footage…
