San Francisco based fabrication experts, One Hat One Hand, was approached by Infiniti to commission a sculpture to tour with a vehicle display at Cirque du Soleil. LumiGeek co-founder, Joe Martin, designed a circuit board to play video-based patterns from an SD card to the coiled color-changing LED strip inside each flower blossom.
LumiGeek co-founder, John Taylor, was hired by John Murray Productions in Oakland, CA to make a large installation of Color Kinetics iFlex lights become an interactive LED art pice. Visitors to Jack London Square could request color and pattern combinations through text messages. A custom MaxMSP patch handled the interactivity and the spatial mapping of […]
Prior to founding LumiGeek, Joe Martin and John Taylor collaborated on several design projects for Red Bull. The Xcase, an Xbox gaming system in a customized Zero-Haliburton briefcase, is a perfect example. Designed by Corbett Griffith and John Taylor, the portable gaming system included custom audio and LED hardware from Joe Martin.
