Technology & Material
Method
The algorithm of the imaging mechanism of Liquid Views is effective on three levels: First, it is a program for generating the waves through physical simulation based on a physical algorithm and on an artificial neural network that makes the water look as if it were real. The wave algorithm also serves to distort the texture coordinates of the camera image according to the flow of the waves. Second, it is a program for reading the video stream from the camera into the wave texture, and third, a routine for reading the touchscreen signals into the wave generator.
