Mirror of Desires
This is a mirror that makes you go to a dream place where your inner desires rain over you.
We started with a basic sketch of the concept we wanted to convey. We wanted to create a distinct space were all your senses knew the moment you step into this dream world.
We settled on having a soft surface, ambient music, and a magic “mirror” that will show your inner desires.
For this project, I was in charge of creating the system that will track the body position of people and transpose them to another place. I settled on using an XBOX Kinect v1 and Processing.
After tracking key points of the body, I programmed a “dream zone” where the system will display objects pouring down on you.
The skeleton and objects have a collision area that let’s you interact with your surroundings as long as you are standing inside the “dream zone”.
