I have been writing about Microsoft Research quite a bit and lately it seems that they are showing off our future every few days.
Last week was no different and they gave us 3 different projectors that allow you to interact with them through shadows and augmented reality.
3 devices, split up into camera, room and SLAM models, incorporate pico projectors, coaxial IR cameras, inertial measurement units (IMUs) and the company’s Kinect to project augmented visions onto surrounding surfaces. The environmentally aware systems allow for shadow- and touch-based interaction with the CG overlays, offering pinch functionality, icon selection and even painting.
Pretty cool you think? Check out the video
One day we might all have one of those to check out the latest furniture and what they will look like in our home.
