- Can you whistle better if you eat much carrot?
csikz | admin | 2013-01-29 23:46:19 | just working on | read post
Hungarian parents often say to their kids if they eat carrot they will whistle better. This is a saying which was experienced by almost everyone of us in childhood and were thinking about if it is really true or our parents was just playing fool with us. So we made a test to put an end to this question.
This video is also the first piece of a kitchen myth buster series we plan to do with Based on Pig.

- Fröccs application for iPhone
csikz | admin | 2012-08-08 11:24:09 | just working on | read post
We just released our new Fröccs application in Appstore. Now we are working on the sticker promos.
The app is about the hungarian drink called "fröccs" which is the same as spritzer, the mixture of wine and soda water. But in Hungary, there is a great drinking culture around fröccs, there are many different mixing ratios with different names. With this app you can learn the names of the different mix ratios.

Jodi Rose was in Kibu today and after a short introduction and discussion we went out to Elisabet Bridge, to listen to the inside noises of the bridge. It was sometimes surprising what noises came from the structure sometimes it was clearly generated from the transit traffic.
We had another discussion on the ways she should complete her project with the bridges of Budapest. I look forward to it!

- iMac motion sensor hack

We just made a funny Friday hack in kibu with an iMac desktop computer. Although iMacs have no built-in motion sensor we found a way you can simulate it. Can you guess how? Of course using the built-in camera image :)
For what reason would you lift up that heavy iMac and move it... we don`t know...

- Light Graffiti
csikz | admin | 2012-05-10 18:41:47 | just working on | read post
This is what we`ve done recently for a commission by Magyar Telekom. It is another drawing application but the visuals look like neon glow. Also pay attention on how we handled the gesture of lifting the "spray" by the multiplication and parallax effect on the hand cursor.
The idea was to make the visuals similar to the traditional light graffiti that you can create with a light source photographed with long exposure.

An old Nokia phone keyboard hacked, connected to an Arduino through series of relays, which was controlled by Max/MSP.
What is it good for? Of course we wanted to control the old Nokia Snake game by recorders! See the results on the video!

- New video of Trinity Kick

Just uploaded this improved video of Reconstruct Trinity Kick project. Some thoughts came along while rethinking the project.
One of the inspirations comes from the well-known scene of the Matrix film where Trinity jumps and the time freezes while the camera turns around.
What is engaging in post apocalyptic fictions?
Seeing all the cultural assets destroyed, which ensures our everyday life at a level we all got used to. How to start over when all elements of our civilized world disappear? What is the substance of civilization at all? All the gigantic machineries built for serving our comfort that we all refer to as “big cities”? Or is the civilization interiorized in our mindset? Does the destruction of the physical assets mean an inevitable downgrading of the quality of life or is it rather a chance to make a jump to a new level? A jumping gesture in the emptiness of ruins is a good start. Do you think that it is air what you are breathing in?
