You as an object

Vimeo  (Ana Maria Moutinho )


We describe an interactive installation implemented in a museum context. The prototype is based on skeleton tracking, through Kinect camera, the application was developed with Zigfu Development Kit and Unity 3D, using 3D virtual objects from the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology collection at UCL, presented in AR.
The aim is to engage regular museum visitors with the museum objects through enabling various types of embodied and performative experiences. We describe the installation including the technology, software, and sensors and discuss briefly the social and social context necessary for supporting prototyping and design activities.
