Futura Epsis 1 / Rumpistol / Red Baron
- For the release of the Floating LP by danish artist Rumpistol we created an interactive realtime
sound visualization with an iPad remote control and a cutting edge HTML5 website.
The visuals are available as a free download for Mac, Linux and Windows and can be used in stereoscopic 3D with red/blue- shutter- or polarization glasses via side by side rendering.
As a teaser for the project we created an state of the art HTML5 website that shows one of the floating scenes in the browser.

- The remote app:
- "Using Multi-Touch the visuals are remote controllable with an iPad via WIFI."
Use one finger to change the camera perspective or use more than one finger to zoom into 3D models.
Users can also choose their own color and switch between scenes and 3D modes for example for the use with shutter-glasses.
- The behavior of the app is based on a fluid algorithm that has been calculated between 1750 and 1850 but could not been solved until the 1950's when researchers started to use computers and develop numerical algorithms to solve the equation.
