Lowlands 1996: Tramp-On-Line 
Tuesday, June 27, 2006, 06:35 PM - Personal, English
People could jump on a trampoline and if they reached a curtain height, a melody was played, lights started flashing and a picture was taken.
The pictures should be send to a system that guys of the VPRO started to develop, now called MMBase, and of course this didn't work (boy, was I pissed).
So we made our own presentation on the web.

This was produced by Tv3000 as part of the VPRO-digitaal stand on the Lowlands festival.
I programmed it in C on a Silicon Graphics machine.
The detection was done with an ordinary infrared motion detector. Rob Linders of ArtiVisuals made the hardware interface.
We had a lot of help from students of the HKU, faculty KMT.

P.A.R.K. saved some video recordings, here are two fragments (click on the pictures to play):
