The game in action

This project is my first experience with Microsofts Kinect and motion tracking. With Sandra Müller I created a prototype of a game world for children to interact with animals in the wood. With their hands the user can attract the forest dwellers.
The setting consists of a screen, showing the game platform, whereas the kinect is tracking the users hand moves in front to transfer these into the game. The video below shows how to interact with the game – the gray circle is the position of the tracked hand.
