Google has released a new software framework that aims to give programmers the ability to create interactive experiences in physical spaces. It could potentially be used to build interactive art installations or games that involve physical interaction.
In the announcement, Google described a sample Interactive Spaces installation where ceiling-mounted cameras tracked the position of individuals in a room so that the software could display colored lights on the floor where they are standing.
The concept is intriguing and the availability of source code under a permissive license will open the door for a lot of experimentation. Now all Google needs is some creative minds to pick the concept up.
