Kinect Tracking Video: by Design-IO at NYSCI

Prototyping for Puppet Parade, NYSCI’s artists in residence Design-IO, use a Kinect camera:

This is what the Kinect camera mounted above the screen sees. We needed to mount it in this way so we could easily see when someone’s arm was outstretched in front of them. 

Sharing resources across multiple installations - prototype test.

Testing sharing resources between two installations. The system can detect and identify boxes ( our cargo trucks ) and add resources from one installation and have the trucks transport the resources to another installation. Note: This is proof of concept and doesn’t represent a final installation. We’re using computer vision for the identification in this prototype but a more robust and flexible solution would probably involve rfid.
