My son is two and half years old and he likes all sorts of stories and animations. So when it came to writing a proposal for Intel Perceptual Computing Challenge, I thought why not do something that will be liked by my son!
The concept of a hands-free game is not new, and many unsuccessful attempts have been made to abandon peripheral controllers to rely solely on the human body as an input device. Most of these experiments came from the console world, and only in the last few years have we seen controllerless systems gain significant traction.
What happens when you take the technology behind perceptual computing and pair it with cutting-edge, exploratory art works? That’s the question Infrared5 CEO and Creative Director Rebecca Allen decided to explore with a new art exhibit coming out September 20, 2013 titled “From Paper to Pixels”; “an initiative to create collaboration between traditional artists and new media artists.”
