Weather Worlds is a new interactive installation by design I/O that grants children weather controlling superpowers. Utilising cameras and real-time greenscreening via openFrameworks, the installation allows children to see themselves immersed in an interactive and dynamic environment. The custom computer vision system tracks the heads, hands, feet and movement of children on the platform and also recognizes gestures. Using their bodies children can conjure a storm, release a twisting tornado or rain down bolts of lightning from their fingertips. There are mighty wind fields to move through, stomping earthquakes, light bending sunshine and blizzards that will make you shiver!
