Digital Graffiti Wall
A prominent installation at the B2Believe event was an interactive LED that allowed attendees to collectively transform something that begins bland and literally says “boring” to something that was beautiful and expressive. A blend between creative tech and physical installation, this was meant to inspire and create a magical moment.
We used the HTC Vive Pro 2 headset and base stations together with five Vive 3.0 trackers to create the technical setup and integrate seamlessly with our custom developed software, made in Unity.
To create a realistic feel of painting, we developed custom made hardware to mount onto the trackers, paintbrushes, markers, paint buckets and paint rollers.
We attached the Vive trackers to our paint tools to give it more functionality: start and stop drawing, ability to switch colors and give it a realistic feel: just like you have to push the button on a graffiti can to start spraying, you would have to push the button on our graffiti can to activate the tracker. We also mimicked the behavior of the painting tools in our software, based on your position to the screen; for the spray can, when you start close it will have thinner strokes than when you stand further away, which makes it really intuitive.
