Now, with the right setup, devices and the Kinect, you can transform buildings and color them and even use them as a great gaming display. The Kinect NuFormer 3d Video Mapping is the product of careful architecture, design and technological brainstorming that gives users the freedom to interact and design existing building through gesture and touch-based commands. This video by the NuFormer Projection is a display of this proof of concept. In the video, massive color projectors are placed and with the Kinect and Android devices, a selected building turns into a canvass where users can freely alter colors and play games. Using the Kinect, passers-by can play around with various effects in order to add activity and color to the building. Using android devices, users can change the color of the building and even play a game on it. This Kinect program really pushes the Kinect’s potential in even the simplest yet most entertaining matters.
Here is a description but the developers:
“NuFormer showing new interactive techniques combined with 3D video mapping.
After executing 3D video mapping projections onto objects and buildings worldwide, the use of interactivity is the latest addition to this technology. To add to the experience of the spectators, interactive projection applications that are combined with the 3D video mapping technique were developed. All types of branded content, logos or product placement can be incorporated in these interactive projection applications.
During the interactive projection test the spectators became the controller and interacted realtime with the building by using gesture based tracking (Kinect). People could influence the content by using an iPad, iPhone or webbased application made available for both mobile phone and computer use. For this test Facebook interactivity was used but any type of social media can be incorporated into the projection.”
