“Look at the shiny shiny cube….”

The smart people at the University of British Columbia have created a “personal cubic head-coupled 3D display that shows reactive 3D scenes”.

Basically it’s a box that adjusts to movements, and lets you interact with objects inside a virtual 3D world.

pCubee is made with five flat-panel screens that uses perspective-corrected rendering and real-time physics simulation to create compelling visualization and interaction techniques for 3D content.

Very clever. Very cool.

Hand from Above from Chris O’Shea on Vimeo.

Hand From Above is an interactive installation by Chris O’Shea. He was commissioned by Abandon Normal Devices and Liverpool City Council for BBC Big Screen Liverpool and the Live Sites Network to create something for the BBC Big Screen. Hand From Above interacts with unsuspecting pedestrians, it can tickle, stretch, flick or remove entirely them on the big screen.

Chris used openFrameworks and OpenCV to build this software.
