Interactive Dance Floor

This was a quick project using the same setup as the Facebook project : Four overhead Christie LW1400 projectors blended together, two synchronized rendering machines with two DVI outputs each, four 3D Tyzx cameras and a linux box running Tyzx people detection software.

This was done for an event with Youtube featuring a dubstep breakdancing group. The client wanted some cool motion reactive visuals on the floor and was very impressed with the results. There was also an overhead camera broadcasting the show live on Youtube. Each person in the space is assigned a random color for the squares beneath their feet. The system stayed up in the Obscura demo room for a few months and the motion tracking performed surprisingly good with a crowded dance floor during the holiday party as well.
