Inside the strongly coloured flight-case there was a floating 16U rack with two 17” CRT monitors. When open, two DVD-players would hide under the Rocket Machine, positioned so that a pointed handheld controller could start both loops in a semi-synchronized way.
As way leads onto way, other projects took my attention and the Rocket Machine was not shown as much as I had intended.
I still like the retro-industrial feel of the monitors and the flight-case, so it feels good to present it here.
The next version of The Rocket Machine. had flatscreen monitors on a movable stand.
The two video loops played out from two RaspberryPi’s in full frame-sync.
This also gave the extraordinary possibility to update and change the content on the screens, via wifi in the exhibition space, on a daily basis.
As in this project.
The latest version, with larger, 55″ screens
