Toy View Workshop – Computer Vision Project 1

leave a comment »

Continuing from describing the intent of the fascinating Toy View workshop in my last post, here are some images from the first experimental project we built – a  collaborative dance game called Face-Off. The game was developed using motion tracking in Adobe Flash. It is played by two dancers who are prompted to dance or move based on visual feedback (while dance music plays in the background). Only the dancer who is prompted visually must move, while the other must stay absolutely still. The team of two dancers wins if they are each able to dance at the right time and keep the music going until the end of the song.
