Hand-Shadow Illusions and 3D DDR Based on Efficient Model Retrieval

An installation art system that children can use to play hand-shadow illusions or pose to match images dynamically shown on the screen as background music plays.

Enhanced Life
This project integrates image processing, 3D model retrieval, and traditional games to create new installation art.

Goals
To allow users to move their bodies or hands to create an image, and use the 3D model retrieval system to evaluate their performances in an interesting game.

Innovations
The system blends traditional children's games with an up-to-date 3D model retrieval system.

Vision
Such a system installed in subway stations or public buildings will encourage people to relax, play, and think. The system may inspire another interaction method with the addition of multiple cameras and a 3D server as background knowledge. It could also be seen as another (not very accurate but very low cost) method for motion capture.
