NASA – Major Space Act Award

NASA Presents the “Major Space Act Award” to Clement Shimizu for the development of a significant scientific or technical contribution, entitled Nasa Eyes, that has been determined to be of major value in the conduct of an aeronautical or space activity of NASA!  This is a very humbling award because I was only a very small part of a big team including my crew including D’nardo Colucci, Clayton, Hilary McVicker, Michael Ford, Ken Yager, Juan, Daryl, Kathy Fortier, Tony Berger, Adam Wales, and the rest of The Elumenati and the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Created for use in Elumenati’s GeoDome immersive environments, Worldviewer is a tool that allows users to easily author interactive presentations while incorporating up-to-date multimedia content from a variety of sources. The WorldComposer content authoring platform is easy to learn and simple to use, allowing educators to produce fully interactive experiences based on their own expertise, without requiring programming skills.

Users can build docent-guided presentations, user-driven experiences, and recorded scripts using movies, still images, and high definition video created for both standard and spherical (panoramic) media. Worldviewer simplifies the process of providing audiences with a fresh, continuously integrated interactive experience.

Worldviewer uses the Omnity “Perspective Projection Mapping” toolkit for projection mapping the earth visualization data onto any type of display surface using a wide variety of video projectors, lens, edge blending, stereoscopic, and camera calibration technologies. Omnity was devloped by Clement Shimizu and D’nardo Colucci for the Elumenati and was based on a publication titled OmniMap Perspective Projection Mapping authored by Clement Shimizu and com during graduate school.

This beautiful video showcases Elumenati’s installation for the Children’s Museum of Manhattan’s America to Zanzibar: Muslim Cultures Near and Far exhibit. It uses Elumenati WorldViewer software for a 3D exploration of mosque architecture projected inside of a Geodome display.

“When the Children’s Museum of Manhattan began work on our exhibition six years ago, it was our dream to be able transport visitors around the world. With the help of the Elumenati’s amazing GeoDome Panorama and WorldViewer, that dream became a reality.” — Andrew Ackerman / Executive Director, Children’s Museum of Manhattan
