SCI-Arc’s Eyerobot 2 seminar offered in Spring 2014 challenged students to work on the prototype of a full scale dynamic interface, which invites users for an interactive play between the physical world and the virtual world in real-time, using the human body. The exhibit used scanner mechanisms to track people around the space and have the robots trace them. The interaction between the robots and the visitors created a playful experience and allowed for comfortability with the machines. The processes used for the tracking involved kinect scanning with live stream joint movements in the space.
