A musical social interaction using gesture technology
Industry:: Media and Entertainment
Objective: To use gesture technology to boost social interaction
Product: MotionMagix™ Interactive Wall
Gesture recognition is all set to change the way we interact with almost everything. What would you say if we told you that you could DJ a beat box on the street? Our partner wanted to see how people react to gesture recognition technology and if this technology could boost social interaction. TouchMagix developed the content and software for this installation for this very purpose. At the heart of this interaction lies the technology behind MotionMagix™ Interactive Wall. A hand icon flashed on the screen and people had to copy the motion displayed on the screen to start the program. As in a music mixer the content was designed to split into smaller parts, this screen and the music could be controlled by many people at the same time. A large number of people gathered to check out and interact with this installation. It was a lot of fun to see people grooving to the tune of this gesture controlled beat box. This novel public interaction program was a huge success and generated a lot of interest even online because of its unique interactive content. It got its share of appreciation even in social media and received close to a 100,000 views soon after it was uploaded.
Impact: The installation generated a lot of buzz both online and offline because of its unique content and technology capability becoming a viral sensation.
