An attempt to build a responsive screen, that reacts to the viewer's position to create the illusion of depth.
A small video camera picks up the scene, and (using Processing) attempts to find the user's position via Face Recognition. This information is then fed back to update the outputted graphics.
We originally attempted the visuals as fully rendered 3D images, but couldn't get the application to shift through that many 1024x768 images quick enough, so fell back onto a basic 'popup book' (2.5D) style scene.
This project was developed for the Media Sandbox project mediasandbox.co.uk/, between HMC Interactive hmcinteractive.co.uk/ and us lot at Aardman aardman.com.
As always with R&D there's loads more we'd love to do with the project, but we're very happy with the results so far.
