Kinected Conference from Lining (Lizzie) Yao on Vimeo.
MIT Media lab always comes up with some cool projects, this is one of them. They are working on this project with one question in mind,
What we can do if the screen in videoconference rooms can turn into an interactive display?
Description from them,
What we can do if the screen in videoconference rooms can turn into an interactive display? With Kinect camera and sound calibration system, we can easily access the spatially calibrated depth and audio information.
We introduced four features, which are "Talking to Focus", "Freezing Former Frames", "Privacy Zone" and "Spacial Augmenting Reality". By Lining Yao, Anthony DeVincenzi, Ramesh Raskar, Hiroshi Ishii from MIT Media Lab
