Looks like fun! #NYCMLFTW!!
At NYU’s Movement Lab, we’re using our motion capture systems to experiment with large-scale crowd games. We can track the position of many beach balls in a room as a crowd of people throws and whacks them around. We’re learning how to map this ‘input device’ to interesting applications and games. We’re still in the development phase, trying to figure out what works the best and what’s the most fun. This is exciting research that pushes the limits of state of the art motion capture. We are seeking volunteers to come in for two hours to help us with a series of mini games and exercises. We will be projecting our software onto the wall so you can watch live as we test and explore our software. Help us improvise with beach balls ranging in size from 1 to 12 feet.
