As the saying goes, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Fortunately, that’s not true for old projectors. Last night, we hooked up a projector that’s far from new but still pretty awesome! We hooked it up to a laptop and a neat piece of open source software called, MusicBeam. This is not your ordinary visualization software although if you have been to some of our larger events, you know how much we love visualizations! This software uses shapes and color that by themselves are completely boring (as shown in the laptop images below), but projecting those shapes and colors with a projector and haze is stunning! I’ll even go as far as to say that it rivals some very expensive and high end lights that you’d find at your favorite DJ and lighting retail outlet. The video doesn’t quite do the effect justice as it seems to lose some of the depth that you can see while standing in the room. Even so, it’s still totally awesome and we are excited to use this effect in the near future!
