Fast Company describes Derivative’s TouchDesigner as something like Microsoft’s Surface, something like the G-Speak Minority Report user interface, and something totally new. It’s also at the core of some very interesting projects involving interactive user interfaces, multi-projections, 3D, video mapping and mixing, and networked devices as will be illustrated by Greg and Steve.
This talk will help you understand how TouchDesigner’s procedural visual programming environment facilitates the prototyping and creation of interactive systems from DIY to large-scale deployments. It will also make clear why TouchDesigner has become the standard platform for all production at Obscura Digital as Steve explained at FITC in San Francisco last year : “Before we knew about TouchDesigner we had used the full gamut of interactive authoring tools – so it’s saying a lot”.
From MIT, to the Climate Summit in Copenhagen, to the YouTube Guggenheim Awards, to the Prada Epicenter Tokyo to Plastikman Live 2010 TouchDesigner is altering the way we get things done.
