My buddy Friedrich invited me to another wacky mixer event at Eyebeam labs this Saturday. Eyebeam parties are always fun gatherings of the geekerati, playing with high-tech toys, grooving to funky mashup artists and vjays. Here’s what’s happening on Saturday:
This saturday, during the eyebeam MIXER event, I will set up a life-size 3D scanner for all of you to use – using a pool, some ink, a webcam and some free software. All you need to do is to bring your bathing suit (preferably light colored) and you can get a scan of your whole body… towels and and a swim-cap are provided… and more details for the event (there’s going to be Live Music, a Robot and an Open Bar!) can be found here.
For some reason, I volunteered to be one of the people getting scanned. That’s right, my dream of being digitized is becoming a reality! Check the video above for a small-scale version of Friedrich’s bootleg scanning process.
Eyebeam is located at 540 W21st street between 10th and 11th Ave. The event starts at 9pm.
