Predator Invisibility and Ghost Furniture with Kinect

When writing The Digital Sea, invisibility was one of the cool effects I thought was possible with ubiquitous augmented reality.  I didn’t expect to see tangible examples so soon.  Granted, without AR glasses, all the effects are static on the screen and only eye candy.  But what glorious eye candy Fukatsu-san makes.  The predator alien would be proud.

The second video from yummyfuture shows us how to make ghost images of furniture (or whatever you’d like to do.)

I think I could watch new Kinect video’s all day.

  1. Great stuff! “Optical Camouflage Kinect” reminds me of Optical Camouflage experiments in 2003 by Prof. Susumu Tachi at the University of Tokyo. See photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/renakosnett/3528030914/

    …And I can’t help but thinking of Georges Melies’s early films when I watch “Ghost Furniture”.

    Wonderful to see all these creative explorations using Kinect! Keep them coming!
