        Our friends Çıplak Ayaklar Kumpanyası and Vertigo Flying Effects create unique vertical choreography. We collaborate SigmaRD, so we track dancers' body on the air with 2 depth cameras and then send real-time generated visuals precisely on a ground where they specifically touch. At the same time, musician friends from Gevende play their dramatic composition. ::: Credits ::: Choreography: Aslı Öztürk-Duygu Güngör (Çıplak Ayaklar Kumpanyası) Rigging Design: Cihan Kuşcu, Mevlut Yaman (Vertigo Flying Effects) Performance: Aslı Öztürk, Cihan Kuşcu Music: Ömer Öztüyen, Gökçe Gürçay, Serkan Çiftçi (Gevende) Experience Design: Elif Demirci (NERDWORKING) Tracking System: Eray Berger, Cem Keskin (SigmaRD) Visual Coding: Armağan Diktepe Technology Co-ordinator: Erdem Dilbaz (NERDWORKING) Special thanks to Visio-Vox for equipments and Candaş Şişman for color correction. contact: nerd@nerdworking.org

          Panic at Freshtival!  Invader aliens are stealing beers of the audience, so you'll need to rescue them. Go to playing area and wave to play! Aliens Stole My Beer! has created to channelize the meaningless power of audience shouting back at festivals. The game that we developed is a contemporized version of a classic "shoot’em up" games. We used infrared depth camera to design natural interface and so, the player can move the character with body movement. Also with the adaptation of sound control, the player can shoot and destroy the aliens by using headset microphone.   Over 400 people played the game in 10 hours at Miller Freshtival and most of them get crazy and happy!
