|In this demo we looked at new ways of controlling particles without having to do a 'pick-up' where the Kinect starts tracking your skeleton. We also played with the tracking smoothness and texture of the particles.|

|Using the Kinect sensor's real time depth camera we can isolate users on the screen.|
Here, two guests are seeing this experiment for first time. They enjoy feely interacting without any instruction.
There are many possibilities for this in the arts, healthcare, education and sport.
|Using the 'tracked user' depth maps generated by the Kinect sensor we have developed a method to record a live performance then play that video back into the scene to interact with the live performer.|
We've seen this being done with pre-recorded projection material but not capturing the live performance. We're very excited about this.
|Much the same process as Tech Demo 02 but exploring a different particle effect.|
|Having seen many examples where particle generators are 'attached' to the hands, we set about recreating this as a springboard into exploring new ideas.|
|We have explored the possibilities of controlling music through the Kinect. There are many similar examples where something like a Cutoff Filter is controlled by the vertical position of a hand. For a dancer this is big limitation to their freedom of movement.|
Here, the volume of three different audio tracks is controlled by his position in the space. The spotlight is also controlled by reading the dancer's location.
