GRL Germany at Street Lab Meets Berlin

As part of the Street Lab meets Berlin Fest, we’re showing blitzTag this weekend, plus doing an intro/behind the scenes talk. We’re also working with local artist Shine in Decay, who will be leading an LED throwie workshop & urban installation. Details below:

blitzTag

GRL Germany presents blitzTag, a brand new Laser Tag software, with a whole suite of new features. You are invited to as yet undisclosed location, to bomb urban space with massive light based graffiti. blitzTag is not meant to replace the grand tradition of physical graffiti, it is an alternative open source tool – for urban communication in the digital age.

Fr, 11th of March, 22:00-24:00
Venue TBA, Check:

AND

We’re very excited to be part of Street Lab Meets Berlin in March. We’re planning a night of urban projections on Friday March 11 … featuring blitzTag. Check back soon for more details. Should be a fun time for all.

All Your Exhibit Belong to Us

Heute Tag? blitzTag? … What’s it called?

GRL-Germany displayed our brand new laser tag app during the final weekend of transmediale11.

We were happy with the result: ‘All Your Exhibit Belong to Us’: a chance for the public to tag over-top of some of their favorite (and maybe not so favorite) exhibits at the festival.

We’re still working on a final title for the application, which should be coming soon – along with a much larger urban screen presentation. More details to follow shortly. Thanks all for coming out and leaving your mark in media.

Was ist GRL – LASER Tag Intro

Eine kurze Einführung in die Welt von GRL.

Laser tagging ist das beliebteste Kunstwerk. Einfach umzusetzen und jeder kann mit machen.

Kurz und Knapp: Eine Kamera filmt eine Hauswand ab, mit einem Laserpointer “schreibt” man etwas auf die Hauswand. Die Software dahinter merkt sich den Laserpointer und schreibt mit Hilfe eines Beamers das Graffiti an die Wand. Geht garantiert wieder ab 😉

Hier ein Video aus New York! (Bald kommen noch andere schöne Sachen)

Und noch was kleines aus Wien, Österreich
