friends' cut in 5 mins

mostly people whom I have nothing in common with besides lolita, don't know very well despite having been on each others' flists for a while or our lives/interests have just diverged. You're welcome to PM me if you feel I have treated you unfairly.

If you're following me for fashion reasons, please go to: http://milkred.posterous.com/ instead thank you!

Friends trim.

Mostly people who never comment/reply/post/talk to at all

If you're on twitter/facebook and we're still talking that's okay

It's just the couple of dead journals with nothing that freaks me out kinda abit O.O;;;

Any other issues, PM me.

initially i was going to use a spherical projector and inflatable dome from Elumenti (who has patent on it btw) but they didn't reply my email and it would have cost me thousands. THOUSANDS. even with grants/sponsorship i could never afford that - especially since it would be for 3 weeks for exhibition. so here's how it works to create a full 360 immersive enviroment without paying a fucktonne of cash.

1. get your image
2. get your projector
3. get a spherical mirror

convert your image to a fisheye image with a 32 degree wrap (approx)

place your projector behind the sphere, with the focussing distance of X.

X = size of room divided by min. focussing distance according to aspect ratio (or something like that, i worked it out in my head) basically the distance should be scaled via the aspect ratio so that the projection will be as sharp as possible. in any case if you dump it on a rolling trolley you can move it around until you get the perfect angle. it is also possible to use trig distancing if you want to project *downwards* at an angle (say... your projector is on the ceiling, with a spherical mirror at 45 degrees)

it works by cancelling each other out. a warped image projected on a sphere (-35 degrees from the fisheye compensated by +35 degrees from sphere) = PERFECT UNDISTORTED IMAGE. if you want to be accurate about it, download a cubic mapping form, project it and then you can calculate the exact angles of wrap in each room (it would be like creating a profile). the angle of warpping also depends on the aspect ratio of your projector..... a 16:8 projector would have a stronger wrap but also be sharper. Increasing the lumens value is another way of ensuring clarity and focus (since you lose a couple of pixels each time you warp)

ok folks, im outta here. im gonna test it out by playing IMMERSIVE KATAMARI DARMACY HELL YEAH :D

*a variation of this (for a full 360 experience) is to hang a spherical mirror ball ABOVE a projector like a disco ball. the wrap values will be totally different though, but I'm quite game to try it....

friends cut in like, 5mins. Mostly the people who don't post/never comment/don't know at all etc. I like keeping my flist small so I can personally know you. If you feel that I've been wrong, feel free to PM me.

you are darkviolet

Your dominant hues are blue and magenta. You're the one who goes to all the parties but doesn't quite fit in at every one... you know what you want, but are afraid of what the world might think of it. You're a little different and that's okay with them, and if you're smart it's okay with you too.

Your saturation level is very high - you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn't be afraid to lead people, because if you're doing it, it'll be done right.

Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.

LOL yea!! I'm a very 'OK' person xDDD like an O.K. computer xDDDDDD;;;; am possibly too OKish sometimes ^^;;;;;;

Friends' cut.

I'm just clearing those people who never comment/post anything; or simply never speak at all (on lj or outside), or those that just added me for lolita - most of you are safe!

If you think it's unfair, just PM me. I just want it done before I post new years' writings which are of personal nature.
