Create interactive surfaces using Kinect and a data projector

2013-08-17

What do you get when you combined Microsoft Kinect for Windows, Windows 8 and a data projector? Ubi Interactive's software allows you to turn just about any surface into a multi-touch display:

From the Ubi Interactive site:

"Can I use any surface? Yes, you can- as long as the surface is visible to the depth sensor camera in the Kinect. You may want to make sure that the surface is neither too absorptive (such as some of the Plasma screens) nor reflective (such as some glass material). During the initialization, Ubi will let you know if it works with the surface."

and

"to avoid shadow during interaction, you may want to use a short distance projector such as Epson PowerLite 1776W or Sharp PG-D2870W"
