HoloLens Room Scanning Effect

HoloLens Room Scanning Effect

Talk about an awesome, informative, and interactive installation!  This display was part of the Bring Your Own Beamer event that happened in September in The Netherlands.  Using a Kinect and a projector, a scanning effect was created, based on the HoloLens intro video.

In the installation, the color of the background is dependent on the distance of the body from the camera.  Using the RoomAlive toolkit (which Brett and Raj know a lot about since they were two of the main creators on the RoomAlive project), a single projector and a kinect work together to create the scanning area.  Users can make the display more colorful by bringing multiple people into the scanning area.  Brought to you by Roland Smeenk, you can read more about the project here.

P.S.  You can read more about RoomAlive, here!
