Depthtouch - Elastic Membrane Manipulates Real and Virtual SpacePublished by admin on Fri, 24/02/2012 - 4:08pm
Who you tryin' to get crazy with ese? Don't you know I'm loco? Yes, this latest hack may very well prove to be infact - wait for it… insane in the membrane, insane in the brain. Using the depth sensing wonderfulness of our little buddy Kinect, this project allows the user to manipulate an elastic memberane with projected images that react with real life physics properties by having them "gravitate" to the area on the membrane that is being pushed inward.
Not too many practical ideas come to mind when analyzing what this type of installation could be applied too, but all the same, it's still pretty damn cool. Kids would definitely dig it that's of sho.
