Here’s the shape of the schedule for 2012. We start with pre-festival workshops, and kick it off that night. That’s right, keynotes at night and breakouts by day. And you’re on your own for meals.
Zach is one of the co-founders of openFrameworks, a C++ library for creative coding. His work uses technology in a playful way to break down the fragile boundary between the visible and the invisible. Recent work includes a music video for artist Bell featuring facial projection mapping/tracking. He is well known for the EyeWriter project, listed as one of the 50 best inventions in 2010 by Time Magazine.
Oblong Industries' technology transforms the way people work, create, and collaborate. The era of one human, one mouse, one screen, one machine is giving way to what's next: multiple participants, working in proximity and remotely, using a groundbreaking spatial interface to control applications and data spread across every display. This is what Oblong builds. It's why we're here.
