Vince McKelvie (of Bikatrope fame) has created a new interactive Blender-Bike installation. This time, you can cycle all the way from Long Beach to San Francisco.
I thought it was about time to show people what i have been working on:
Lb to Sf via bike is an interactive installation/game that documents a bike trip my friend and I took from long beach to san francisco. The user rides a stationary bike through a the 3d world by pedaling forward and steering with the bike handle bars. The world consists of three mini games and a huge chunk of the california coast. I am going to be releasing a version that is playable on a computer without the hardware soon. It is made with the blender game engine, a bit of processing, a wii controller and the makingthings board.
This piece is going to be exhibited may 2nd thru the 15th at CalArts (valencia CA) if anybody is in the area and interested in experiencing it with the bike. If not i will be releasing a version without the hardware around that same time.
