Drop Drop

2006-2008, interactive installation


Drop Drop is a digital paint generating system integrated with a radio-controlled miniature vehicle and a motion tracking system with computer vision.



What if a car you drive in everyday life could create a beautiful painting on the ground instead of generating air pollution?  


Drop Drop invites you to remotely control a miniature RC car using the floor as a virtual canvas through video projection.  The RC car becomes a paintbrush which digitally generates various sized/colored paint drops so you can draw an abstract expressionism painting on the canvas through driving the car.  Once you have finished the virtual painting and parked the car in the parking station, your beautiful painting will be printed out for you on photo paper.
