Destiny viral marketing campaign/teaser sites begin

Remember if you are just lifting the direct ULR IMG from the site, it updates every 2-5 mins, which means people linking to image will always get a new image even when you post it on forums.

Best right click saving and hosting on another site, then post the pictures.

I have refreshed 6 images over last 30mins and they all have different file sizes and are different images, re-hosted from site.

Output.

Destiny taking place in an alternate universe where mankind once ruled thinking Earth was the centre of the universe? Or how about, the Traveller doesn't actually travel. Everything moves around it.

I don't know, now I'm starting to get crazy.
I hope that they put as much thought into the lore of their new game as they have this ARG. This has me rather hyped for a new world to explore...
 
You can UV map a texture to a 3D object using Maya, Photoshop, 3DStudio and a range of other software like Blender UV for example. I don't believe there is enough images, clarity or data as yet.

Step 1. Coordinate us creating the traffic/regions to get the full right image and a clear left image. We need to do this each day. I believe we need to work out the pairing/distances here. Sheer numbers alone aren't going to be enough, we need to pair images with visitors over more than one viewer to solve.

Step 2. Combine is then stitching or layering those left hand images together (x, y). This will create one large texture or if we have to use many images per day perhaps an animated texture?

Step 3. Clarify is then using the right hand images against the clear left hand images to create a 3D map (u, v). Again if multiple images per day this could be the "pairs" we are looking for and would perhaps creating enough animated mapping or extrusion for the object?

Once those are done we'll have a full texture and a full object (or two paired animations/keys) to map that texture/object. IMO this will not be solvable until all 7 days are completely clear. This is one potential answer but it seems too obvious and does not reference the radio interferometery aspects very well at all. Once we have the full set of images/maps I could run it through blender or 3ds max to get an output. The question is what object are we going to map to? Do the left hand images stitch/arrange to form a sphere texture or a square texture. If I think there are 7 days and only 1 left/right image per day then I don't really see square being a viable object for UV mapping. I could do a sphere just fine but realistically you're just going to see the same as the left hand images stitched together as one large texture.

I'm thinking overall this will be a layered texture and will be used not just for UV mapping the texture to say a sphere but also using another filtration process to create a displacement texture map as well (being the right hand image). It just doesn't fit that well in my mind yet.

Here's a quick blender UV tutorial for you to get your head around where I think this may be heading.

But I'm feeling this is too simple and does not take in enough of the hints Bungie are throwing at us.
 
Using my highly skillful Paint techniques.. I took my 10pm geomask and attempted to illustrate how the image is created. Forgive the shoddy .gif


Order of images goes:
Original Geomask
Left side only
Left side flipped vertically and horizontally
Left side and Flipped vert and horiz separated
Recombined Geomask.
 
Yeah Reddit did all the heavy lifting. Still that's pretty crazy. I'm going to have to go through their thread to find out how they came to that first picture with the numbers.
 
The best voices -- voices that truly matter -- never

Forever.

Your voice moves as whispers, murmurs and urges
inside larger winds. Only the trusted few can absorb
what is necessary. Wise and sly and perfect, your

The path is set. Your voice is unleashed. Except now
it is gone...

And maybe it never was.

Amazing shop skills for that dude on the picture, fascinating to read.
Hopefully that means if they do a similar thing each day, with pictures supplied over time. If we all hit it with a pretty massive synchronised attack on the picture will be good enough to grab a URL.
Although methinks Bungie will make it harder.

Holy shit guyz, I think I am the chosen one.
 
/988?2748014???

I wonder if the cluster of dots above the numbers mean anything.

EDIT: Well, holy shit. This is a little insane.
Unless they're a leftover from the signal filtering it really looks like there's a little text above the number. I would have liked to get a few stronger images so we could make it out. Unfortunately it looks like everyone is turning off their node. It's a shame because the rest of the US rotated into the map and we could have gotten a clearer image.

Per the same guy on Reddit who cleaned up the image to get the url, (username Techercizer) it appears to be something like Braille.

That makes it pretty damn hard to decipher without having a perfectly clear image though given that it's a bunch of noise dots on top of and around Braille dots.
