I’ve put a very short video on youtube of our latest project with the kinect.
In this setup the kinect is used to track a uses hand that directs a virtual flashlight. It was a challenge because the kinect is looking at a steep angle down on the user.
The room itself is a CAVE, a four-sided projection system where users experience a holographic like environment. (if we were to show a virtual table and you would bend your knees, you would automatically see underneath the table). In this particular project the imagery is of a cave that temporally has been excavated by archeologist.
Now, with the virtual flashlight they can explore it again at any time.
