Kinect mod lets presenter interact with presentations

Posted on Monday, October 31 2011 @ 21:46:54 CET by

DigInfo reports a research group from Meiji University and AIST has developed a Kinect mod that inserts the presenter into the presentation by dynamically repositioning objects. Additionally, the same also lets presenters use gestures and body language to emphasize text using gestures, and to push objects off the screen.
"In presentation environments until now, the presenter and screen have been separate, and when information is shown on the screen, the audience looks at the screen. The more detailed the presenter makes the slides, the more he or she loses the leading role. So we've brought the presenter and the screen together, enabling the presenter to take back the leading role."

"We've developed this using C# and the Kinect SDK, so it's not a PowerPoint-type environment. The image position coordinates are stored in Excel to give this kind of display."
