coolux - Interactive Applications at LDI 2012
The new Widget Designer 4.0 features a built-in web server that allows the creation and control of all showcontrol interfaces from any remote HTML browsing device.
The new Pandoras Box version 5.3 supports interactive 3D layer picking, which means that both mouse and touch data will be available from any display client.
Tools like the award winning Widget Designer or Spark allow the setting up of direct interaction and remote control of any Windows XP & Windows 7 computer live-input signal.
Visitors to the coolux booth will be able to see an innovative combination of projection mapping and Microsoft Kinect interaction.
Based on the Windows Kinect SDK, coolux will also present a Kinect Skeleton Tracker tool that features advanced smoothing and prediction algorithms for overcoming signal latencies.
This brand new tool allows for multiple Kinect devices to be connected to the Widget Designer, in order to provide the user with 3D XYZ control data.
This 3D input data can be used to set up gesture control or interactive projection mapping scenarios, for example mapping human body joints to multiple particle systems from the Pandoras Box V5 effects engine.
