Let me introduce you to the previous project by @KitchenByte, the team is comprised of six Ryerson University students currently taking a co-operative super course called Mobility & Mixed Reality.
The team consists of the following students:
- Alex Basso – New Media
- Billy Chan – New Media
- Dylan Didiano – New Media
- Daniel Harley – MA Media Production
- Stefan Despot – Computer Science
- Joseph Lai – Computer Science
The goal is to convert a kitchen tabletop/countertop into a gesture-based interactive platform to explore how we can utilize enhanced information to add to the cooking experience.
The prototype will use a Kinect camera and a projector to display a simple user-interface onto a kitchen table. Kinect libraries will be used to create unique gestures. Tagged objects within the environment will be given functions based on colour-coding and/or position.
