Das BERG Studio aus London hat mit Hilfe von 3D-Software mit einem iPad per Lightwriting-Technik in die Luft gemalte Typo-Hologramme gemalt. Awesome! Snip aus ihrem Posting: Making Future Magic: light painting with the iPad, hier das dazugehörende Flickr-Set.

We developed a specific photographic technique for this film. Through long exposures we record an iPad moving through space to make three-dimensional forms in light.

First we create software models of three-dimensional typography, objects and animations. We render cross sections of these models, like a virtual CAT scan, making a series of outlines of slices of each form. We play these back on the surface of the iPad as movies, and drag the iPad through the air to extrude shapes captured in long exposure photographs. Each 3D form is itself a single frame of a 3D animation, so each long exposure still is only a single image in a composite stop frame animation.

Each frame is a long exposure photograph of 3-6 seconds. 5,500 photographs were taken. Only half of these were used for the animations seen in the final edit of the film.
