    This video is a result of Hackweek at Helios Interactive. I worked with @nickhardeman to create these effects and the system for switching between effects. Huge thanks to Nick for coming out to SF to lend a hand for a week. The setup is fairly specific but here it goes : 1 MacBook Pro with a Kinect Plugged into it ( for point cloud ) The laptop is outputting to a VGA splitter that splits to a monitor so the performance knows what's happening , and the projector behind them. Another computer running SoftKinetic's IISU and the SoftKinetic middleware for skeleton data. A router to send the skeleton data over OSC to the MacBook Pro.

      Here at Helios we have been playing with the latest release of the iisu 3.5 middleware. One of the features we are excited about is the Close Interaction Mode which allows for a more detailed API based on hand and finger tracking. In this simple but visual example we are using a grasping hand to draw 3D ribbons based on the hand position or navigating the camera within 3D space. Users can use a hand pose gesture to easily toggle between drawing and camera mode. The application is running on a Samsung transparent LCD panel which displays white pixels as being transparent. Built with Open Frameworks ( openFrameworks.cc ) and SoftKinetics's iisu middleware ( www.iisu.com )
