Obscura designed and fabricated ten replicas of the Exploratorium’s façade, ranging in size from large terrariums to microscope slides, to contain unique experiments involving fluid dynamics, microorganisms, particle interactions, living systems, crystallization, and growth in time lapse. Documented in ultra high-definition video, these compelling natural subjects are projection mapped back on the surface of the building, creating the illusion of being contained within its structure.
12,000 translucent moving spheres float above a pool of water. At the same time eight high-speed laser projectors send beams into the point cloud creating patterns that can also respond to the positions and posture of visitors in the space.

There are three main ways the Leap’s ability to interpret 3D gestural data will allow for visuals to become ubiquitous that had previously been work intensive or cost prohibitive – as a 3D motion capture device, paired with a 3D sculpting app, and paired with a 3D drawing app. But perhaps the most exciting developments are happening when you modify the Leap to create home brew touch-screens.
