And for those of you who signed up to the mailing list at Ars Electronica: welcome!
For those who weren’t in Linz, we were showing off the latest Fugio build running various patches, including a native OpenGL ES on a Raspberry Pi 3. There were also Fugio badges, stickers, and lots of interesting conversations!
There was a great deal of interest in the Raspberry Pi build, and several people suggested how it could be an excellent platform for educational programs, and cost effective too!
We also had several conversations on the topic of long term preservation of digital art, which is something I’ve built into the heart of Fugio since day one.
It was great to introduce people to Fugio in person and see their reactions and get their impressions of the software through fresh eyes. It’s given me some good ideas for how I want to proceed in the future with new tutorials and features.
For now, I’m focussing on native audio and video playback on the Raspberry Pi as my next major task. Will keep you posted…
As ever, please send me your ideas, feedback, and news of any Fugio projects that you’re working on, and have a great weekend!
It’s great to be back in Linz for Ars Electronica 2017. Have already caught up with many friends from around the world and seen some lovely works, though the event is so huge that there is still so much to be seen.
In preparation for the Mini Maker Faire in POSTCITY on Sunday I have got Fugio badges and stickers ready to give away, so if you’re at Ars Electronica, do stop by and see Fugio in action.
We’ll be introducing Fugio to visitors and helping them make some patches with MIDI controllers, lights, sounds, and probably some bananas.
We’ll also be showing Fugio running on Raspberry Pi with the new OpenGL support in place, as can be seen running in this short video where Fugio is being synchronised between a Windows machine and a Raspberry Pi 3.
Hopefully we’ll have some badges to give away too!
The Mini Maker Faire will be at POSTCITY on Sunday, September 10, 2017, 10 AM-7 PM
