Keyfleas – Interactive augmented projection by Miles Peyton

Created by Miles Peyton, first year student at the Carnegie Mellon University, Keyfleas is an experiment in interactive augmented projection. Inspired by the work of Chris Sugrue where light bugs crawl out of the screen and onto the viewer’s hand, Miles has used Processing and Box2D to create an augmented projection on the keyboard. As the user types, the "fleas" swarm around the pressed key, avoiding the letters. Miles describes the experience as "It's okay if you feel something nibbling at your fingers."
