Abstract

Since the release of the motion picture ’Minority Report’ in 2002, which depicts Tom Cruise interacting with a video display using only hand gestures, there has been a significant interest in the development of intelligent display technology, that users are able to interact with using gestures. In the real world it is common place for us to use gestures and body language to re-enforce our communication. It therefore becomes very natural for us to want to interact with our virtual media in the same way. Traditional methods for pose recognition involve using cameras to track the position of the user. However this can be very challenging to complete acurately in a variety of environments where camera can become occluded or the lighting conditions can change. In this research we prototyped a 3D tabletop display and explored the Kinect game controller as a possible solution to tracking the pose and gesture of a user whilst interacting with our display.
