Gesture Based Data Interaction Using Kinect
Description of Representation:
Check in and check out events from popular programming languages were represented as arcs through space. These arcs climb up a staircase-like structure that represents time, with each step of the staircase being a month. The height and density of arcs, and the languages they represent via color-coding, allow a viewer to intuitively see trends in computer science languages. Audio tones provide feedback for certain commands.
A continued area of research in this project has been to develop a gesture based interaction system, which utilizes the Microsoft Kinect.
The software currently supports the following gestures:
Two hand mode: activated when both hands are above the neck.
