Gucci Group Interactive Screen

Here is a quick little project I did for Dave, who now goes by Fever Creative.

I wasn’t able to go to Miami, where it was used, but Jacob Milam took some videos and pictures.  A video of a runway show floats around the screen, following the users face, while the liquid simulation (thanks Memo! www.memo.tv/ofxmsafluid) in the background reacts to the users silhouette.

I’m now trying to figure out what I should release that would actually be useful for people.  I ended up making a kind of comprehensive ComputerVision class that does

  1. smile detection
  2. Face detection (using ofxCvHaarTracker)
  3. optical flow (using ofxCvOpticalFlowPyrLK)
  4. FERN detection
  5. blob detection w/background subtraction

It’s all pretty well optimized, and easily configurable.  Of course, it can’t do all of these things at once — too much CV!  Eh – nothing special, but if you want it, it’s yours!
