#18: Holographic Audio Visualizers

#18: Holographic Audio Visualizers

I remember staring for hours at the old school Winamp visualizations on my college Gateway computer.

Well as of a couple months ago, audio visualizations have arrived in the age of the hologram! And they really whip the llama’s ass!

Kicking things off, Scott Darby used the HoloPlay.js library to bring his 3D Audio Visualizer TetraHelix into the Looking Glass: “TetraHelix is a real-time 3D Audio Visualizer which builds generative structures with sound. It is inspired by the geometry found in nature and creates a different result each time it runs.”


The app is entirely browser based, so you can give it a try in your Looking Glass here on the MadeWith site.

And Nikki from the Looking Glass Factory team connected the all-powerful Keijiro Takahashi’s VideolabTest to her OP-Z using the Looking Glass Unity SDK.


And voilà, holographic synth!

*this is part of our “100 Days of Holograms” series, where Missy Senteio and Shawn Frayne of Looking Glass Factory post one new wonderful or weird (or both!) use for the Looking Glass holographic display each day.
