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.
