Moritz Waldemeyer is a technical designer from East Germany with a penchant for LEDs, Crystals and Lasers. He’s built custom gadgetry for Swarovski, Chalayan, Arad & Troika. Moritz has created tables with built in LED games like Ping Pong and Roulette that look and act beautifully.
I’ve done some research into projected image interactive pieces which always look clunky but these built in LEDs are awesome. Mr Waldemeyer is already famous but I think his influence on mass communications is about to become gigantic. This man has managed to hack solutions to designer dreams and execute them with style. He also has a sense of humour. It’s a pity so much of his work is almost impossible to photograph well, however, this little reading list should educate you quite quickly on the state of the art.
This is a sampler of his work.

I don’t have an Xbox, but if I did, I’d probably risk divorce and buy BioShock by 2K Games. The previews of the world they have created are awesome and well worth a visit even if you don’t like to play games. The art direction is tremendous. I was chatting with a guy I know who worked on the concept boards for 300 and does a lot of artwork for gaming companies and he raved about the level of detail 2K have gone to on this property. He reckoned that it’s changed the way the industry thinks about their production values. Every nook and cranny is beautifully designed. In fact, the production values easily rival most blockbuster films released today. If you have never heard of this game before this post you definitely have to check out the site. This is not Wolfenstein.

I know that the film has come and gone. It was disappointing and badly done and all the rest of it. Somebody liked it I guess.
Some good has come from the experience though. The Superman Returns flash game where you can while away twenty minutes photographing the Man of Steel as he zooms over various cityscapes. It’s fun and easy. And I’m pretty good at it.
