PARTICIPATORY SENSING 1/4 – the data-citizen driven city

PARTICIPATORY SENSING 1/4 – the data-citizen driven city | Augmented Reality & The Internet of Beings + Things | Scoop.it

In these posts I will share my research on participatory sensing, open data and smartcities that I started about 6 months ago.
The first post is about The data-citizen driven city project which I developed with César García, Jorge Medal and Sara Thomson on September 2011. With this project, produced by a multidisciplinary team consisting of an IT System Administrator, an Industrial Designer, an Artist and an Architect, I really started considering how data can empower communities and catalyze social change.

HoloDesk - Direct 3D Interactions with a Situated See-Through Display

HoloDesk is a novel interactive system combining an optical see through display and Kinect camera to create the illusion that users are directly interacting with 3D graphics. A virtual image of a 3D scene is rendered through a half silvered mirror and spatially aligned with the real-world for the viewer.
Users easily reach into an interaction volume displaying the virtual image. This allows the user to literally get their hands into the virtual display. A novel real-time algorithm for representing hands and other physical objects, which are sensed
by the Kinect inside this volume, allows physically realistic interaction between real and virtual 3D objects.
