Once we take a step back from our screens and look at exciting new opportunities Leap Motion provides, we may discover and begin to describe new ways of computer-human interaction. Here are our top 10 up-to-date.
Studio Hands use Processing and openFrameworks to send send designs of T-shirts and the bag via sound to be screen-printed.
Glassified is a modified ruler with a transparent display to supplement physical strokes made on paper with virtual graphics. The goal of the device is to complement rather than replace a typical ruler and since the display is transparent, both the physical strokes and the virtual graphics are visible in the same plane.
After thousands of developers entered the Intel Perceptual Challenge contest by submitting their ideas, 750 have now been selected to receive a camera to continue to the next stage of the competition.
Ghost is an interactive installation of a snow storm, raging within an abandoned, barren landscape. Within this storm the visitor can make out a procession of human forms which seemingly try to find a way out. The bodies are remnants of the previous visitors, their ghosts, trapped in the hostile environment.
Weather Worlds is an interactive installation that grants children weather controlling superpowers. Utilising kinect cameras and real-time greenscreening via openFrameworks, the installation allows children to see themselves immersed in an interactive and dynamic environment.
Kinograph is an open source project that makes film digitisation affordable and scaleable. It uses components available on the internet, a few 3D printed parts, and a consumer level camera and it produces high quality video with sound.
*is this good?* and LFA architects create a light responsive installation for the French music festival Nuits Sonores.
User 632 is an installation that stores the behaviour of the people who look at it by monitoring them in return. It is designed to know when and how a person passes and stores information as data or ID dependant on proximity.
What are you waiting for? Intel is looking for the most innovative and unique uses of Perceptual Computing. A grand-prize of $100,000 and thousand of dollars more in prizing are available but you must act soon!
The team behind ‘Clouds’ continue to explore the medium in the latest short film “Drowning of Echo”, an interpretation of the Transformation of Echo & the story of Narcissus from Ovid’s Metamorphoses
Murmur enables communication between public and the projection by simulating the movement of sound waves, building a luminous bridge between the physical and the virtual.
