Japanese art project happening in Berlin and Tokyo by Katsuki Nogami, capturing faces displayed on iPads as heads and shared across the two cities - video embedded below:
This name is very traditional and most Japanese name like John Smith.But we can’t meet person whose this name,only example model.So this is like anonymous name.This time,performer doesn’t have face.So this person is looking for face and got and exchange many faces.You can recognize this person by only face.This is like icon on the Internet.There,you can masquerade other people.And that icon is walking in the city selfishly.Yamada taro is anonymous.
This project is done at the same time in Berlin and Tokyo where we are now, and it relays it in the hall. All the data of the face is sharing each places and you can see changing faces from Berlin and Tokyo.There is 8hours time difference,but faces got in real time go quickly 8hours,appears in real sight.You may feel real time.
Incredibly impressive interactive dynamic display which demonstrates potential possibilities working with adaptive form both locally and remotely - video embedded below:
inFORM is a Dynamic Shape Display that can render 3D content physically, so users can interact with digital information in a tangible way. inFORM can also interact with the physical world around it, for example moving objects on the table’s surface. Remote participants in a video conference can be displayed physically, allowing for a strong sense of presence and the ability to interact physically at a distance. inFORM is a step toward our vision of Radical Atoms: tangible.media.mit.edu/vision/
MARIO: Mid-air Augmented Reality Interaction with Objects
Demo of mixed-reality tech where you can play with a cute virtual character - video embedded below:
This mixed reality interface places virtual characters in the real world. It was developed by the Naemura Lab at the University of Tokyo.
Users can have an animated character jump onto their hand, as well as guide the character onto blocks, creating a novel interactive experience.
"Recently, devices have been developed that can form images in mid-air. We’ve utilized one of those, and combined it with sensors and a projector, to provide an intuitive display experience where a picture in the air is skillfully merged with the real world."
Data such as the height of the user’s hand and the shape of the block is obtained using Kinect, and the system is programmed to automatically move the character to the highest place. This data is used to display the character and its shadow correctly in mid-air, both geometrically and optically, creating a very realistic looking experience.
