Sky Interface

We have a set concept and are now working on a demo video for our Sky interface project. I have recently discovered some videos that hint at the interactivity for our concept.

 

“The technology uses a sensor that monitors the position and properties of an object within five feet of it, so not only will you be able to point at the screen to guide the cursor, but your gestures and hand signs will register as well, and control an on-screen object’s position and depth.”

 

It’s exciting that our futuristic concept is slowly becoming reality, but these videos could take away the ‘Wow’ factor from our concept. Luckily we have expanded upon our idea quite massively, in ways I won’t speak of until we have released our demo video…coming shortly.

 

Upon further search, I found someone had made another topic of our group discussion a reality. We spoke of a massage interface that was aimed at couples to add an element play. Our idea was to have content projected onto the skin, such as marching ants, so the other user would have to squish them by massage. In the video they have strapped a vest with pads onto someone and plugged it into a Playstation.

Seems a little violent for a sensual massage! I prefer our idea.

Power Glove Vs Wii

Is it me or is this just an early Nintendo Wii…

It’s a little saddening to see that the ‘marvellous new generation of gaming’ is just a recycled idea, but then… what isn’t. I guess we can just take pride in the advancement of technology.Now we’ve seen the video concept of the power glove, let’s take a look at the reality of it.

Anyinterface

I’ve been looking around this thing called ‘The Internet’ and have stumbled across a video that triggered off quite a rewarding thought.

Here’s the thought that popped up;

“If someone can master an interface as intricate as a keyboard and as well as demonstrated in this video, there is no end to what an interface designer can create!”
