Kinect based art project
An 8 foot pole, atop which are 9 Kinect bars facing outward. Their cameras cover 360 degrees around the pole, and together they create a color 3d map of the entire surroundings. The user wears 3D goggles like Occulus Rift and can see themselves in the third person, look behind themselves without turning, peek around corners, and more. Imagine combining it with a UAV or a live satellite feed!
I could probably come up with a lot of BS about human interaction, the nature of technology in society, man’s relation to himself when reduced to an avatar, etc… but the truth is I think it’s just a really neat idea.
