For the Dutch Technology Week we developed a framework that merges the virtual world directly with the physical environment by synchronizing a beamer projection with depth and movement detection (kinect).
To show the possibilities of this technology we created different applications for a range of venues (Eindhoven, Den Bosch and Beijing). Resulting in interactive installations somewhere between a virtual city tour, mapping and playing field and city analysis.
By moving over maps, users discover different dimensions of the city: green, high tech businesses and urban living. You can also point on the map to place different markers to dicuss locations with other users.
