Love, love is in your hands…

February 24th, 2011 by NearInteraction

If you are passing by the Lisbon Colombo Fnac concept store, check out NearInteraction’s ode to love on the way in, displayed in a giant 50″ inch screen. For the interactive piece, NearInteraction moved beyond gestural 2D into 3D, using the recently released Kinect infrared camera. Not only does this innovation allow tracking of more than one hand as well as depth of field producing a more sensorial environment for the user, it also has simultaneous multi-user use. The installation was navigated gesturally using both hands, creating a simple yet eye-catching Valentines promotion that many couples stopped to interact with before moving into the store.


Carnegie Mellon Innovation Forum on Services and Technologies for Interactive Media (NET-STIM)

February 28th, 2010 by NearInteraction

Held at Pavilhão do Conhecimento in Lisbon, the foremost goal of the forum was to gather like minded expertise of Portuguese research centers, private companies and government agencies working in key interactive technologies and services of digital media. Diogo Terroso was invited to represent NearInteraction and partake in the opening roundtable discussion on Technologies for Interactive Media, exploring how interactive media services require an interdisciplinary approach, where the disciplines of design, communication, psychology, anthropology and sociology need to combine in an effective and innovative way in order to create new products and services, for example, media distribution services (the iPod and iTunes or eBooks and Kindle), social networks (Facebook and Twitter), or co-creation services (like YouTube and Blogging).
