Augmented Engine for Mercedes-Benz

credits wirmachenbunt (Design & Production) commissioned by Atelier Markgraph

A rotating screen shows the live image of an engine. By sensing the screen postion and respecting the camera optics, realtime 3D content is layered on top of the live image. Creating the impression of an xray view, revealing the inner workings of a combustion engine.

Next to the rotating screen is a monolithic display for distant effects. It functions pretty much as the traditional print to communicate engine features in a rather unseen form.

This exhibit was first shown at the paris motor show 2016 and more versions and engines(hybrids) will follow in 2017.

i tried pitching something related a couple of times
using tracked stereo shutter glasses + stereo projection mapping
nobody bit.

anyway, you've taken the visual style really far here.

I find this very inspiring. An overlay idea has been bubbling away in my head for a few months and I came back to VVVV (had a short play in 2011) seeking a way to achieve this. What this Augmented Engine project shows me is a path forward.
