LONDON, England – The Nokia N900 will be making a special appearance when it forms part of an installation at the BFI on London’s Southbank next week. Running from September 9 to 13 is the onedotzero adventures in motion festival, featuring a special installation which will be controlled by a Nokia N900.
The application for the installation was developed by digital artists Karsten Schmidt and Gary birkett. The app uses live messages from a variety of online sources to create an animated digital projection. The actual visual, projected onto the side of the BFI, can then be controlled by the N900. Tapping into the device’s accelerometer, users can manipulate the projection simply by flipping and rotating the device (check it out in the video below). During the festival there will also be a number of talks around development on the maemo platform, including a panel discussion on Thursday 10 September featuring Nokia’s head of user experience design on maemo, Harri Kiljander.
For those keen to see an N900 up close before it goes on sale, get down to the BFI on London’s Southbank next week. Whilst you’re there you can check out the adventures in motion festival too.
