Technology & Material
Method
The visitor's position is interpreted by algorithms of the computer vision. The video picture is transformed by realtime algorithms which are especially designed for the hardware (texture mapping, realtime morphing). This means that picture processing (assessment of the visitor: his approaching, his gestures) and presentation (distortion of the picture) take advantage of the hardware possibilities for realtime interaction. The results are used for certain modifications of the virtual mirror image.
Software
SGI, C++, OpenGL, Computer Vision, Real Time Rendering, SGI Videoboard, Mini Video Camera.
