    Augmented Reality: Hacking The Kinect

    0 Comments

    The Kinect is more than the power behind the XBOX 360. Since its debut in late 2010, Microsoft Kinect has been a favorite plaything of video artists and experiential developers.

    Recently opened in South Korea, Live Park is the world’s first 4D avatar theme park. Think Cirque du Soleil meets EPCOT. (Or Burning Man. But Live Park is indoors.) Using RIFD and Kinect technologies, the 10,000 meter space is a hands-on virtual wonderland where park-goers are are active participants rather than mere observers.

    At Inphantry, we have yet to build a virtual theme park (just give us a little time), but we have created prototypes for motion-sensor games designed for branded events and retail spaces. Hacking the Kinect creates a fully-interactive, augmented reality environment that fosters engagement and increases brand recognition.

    In our virtual soccer drill, individual players must kick the “ball” to knock out falling targets to stay in the game. Much like in similar music and dance-oriented simulation games, every time a user eliminates a gold target, they rack up “star power.”

     

     

    The inclusion of social integration allows the user to also share the game and their results with their friends through multiple social networking platforms. Through the Face.com API, we can even add facial-recognition to the experience.

    This is just one of the ways we screw around at Inphantry.

      Needed to send you that tiny observation in order to thank you so much yet again for those uquine guidelines you have shared above. It is quite strangely open-handed of people like you to deliver extensively what exactly a number of us would've supplied for an e-book to make some cash for their own end, especially considering the fact that you might well have tried it in case you decided. Those tactics likewise served to provide a good way to fully grasp the rest have the same eagerness really like my very own to figure out a lot more on the topic of this issue. I am certain there are millions of more pleasurable instances ahead for those who take a look at your blog.

    30 Second Impression – Microsoft’s HoloLens

    Quick note on our first HoloLens impression…it’s incredible. Inphantry ordered two of them (at $3,000 price tag – yes, ouch.) But we’re truly gunning to use them for future product launches, activations and other events. And honestly? We’d take a big stake in what this device is going to be [...]
