Extempore Flying Woodblocks

Flying woodblocks

This is an example of Extempore driving a distributed real-time physics simulation (Bullet) rendered across three machines. Two machines are driving the four 46 inch touch screens, (two screens per host), and a third machine is driving the two edge blended projectors "sitting on top".

That's a lot of blocks.

Extempore is the open source evolution of Impromptu, a live coding environment.
