In the age of darkness light plays an important role in terms of keeping the human race motivated for the good. Projection mapping has been around for some time now. There is hardware, software and possibilities might seem limitless. How about the aspiring artist or an institution with limited funding for anything, anyone who wants to play with projection mapping? One does not want to leave her computer in a space for a month or more. An institution might not have resources to purchase hardware and software.
OfxPiMapper is an addon for the openFrameworks creative coding toolkit that lets one use the Raspberry Pi mini-computer for serious projection mapping projects. It is open source and available on GitHub. It can not only map videos and images, but can map anything openFrameworks is capable of, which includes data driven visuals, interactive motion graphics or generative 3D scenes.
