Within June, Mozilla collaborated with an designer named Ian Brill to create an installation called the “ Arch” at JSConf EU within Berlin. This interactive environment permitted people to experience the intersection of artwork and technology in a physical, pulsing, immersive way.
Guests could view the larger-than-life Arch plus experience an ever-changing light tv show of 30, 000 colored LEDs. To back up the exhibit, Mozilla engineers constructed a platform that enabled one to use web technologies (with fundamental implementation in Rust & WebAssembly) to control the Arch animations plus makes the light display interactive. The end result was fun and colorful — plus it gave developers a chance to interact with new technologies.
You might recall reading Lin Clark’ ersus post about “ Baby’ s 1st Rust+WebAssembly module “. It offers an excellent overview of why we made a decision to create an art installation around Corrosion and WebAssembly. TL: DR: “ Hello World” projects are great, but this provides a fun and joining way to learn something new.
JSConf recently posted the full movie of Lin’ s talk on-line. You can check it out below:
