Imagination Playground

January 06 2013

I recently finished a project with the Rockwell Group Lab that will be at the National Building Museum for the next 3 years as part of the “Play Work Build” exhibition. The installation uses 2 Kinect cameras with custom openFrameworks software to track the users’ movement and silhouette. The main projection software was created using Unity Pro.

My favorite feedback is from 9 year old Isabella Valles in a Washington Post Kids article, who said that

…her favorite part of the virtual blocks wasn’t watching them rise in a stack. It was what happened when she moved around on the mat.

“It was fun to make them fall down.”
