The Magical Wooden Stick


The Magical Wooden Stick

This installation was designed by Laureline Galliot and Olivier Bau to showcase Revel Technology. It was presented at Siggraph 2012 Emerging Technologies. The visitor is given a magical wooden stick and is invited to wander around the installation. This one consists of multiple artifacts that the visitor can touch. The magical stick modifies the feel of objects and images of the environment, and reveals a parallel world in which dynamic textures are hidden in a colorful world of smooth and silent images and shapes.
