Squishable Sidewalk Spiders – Kinect Multitouch Interactive Projection
This year’s Halloween project
A museum in town set up an interactive projection exhibit this summer, and it gave me this idea for a fun little game for our trick or treaters this year.
I made a few rounds of increasingly goofy looking spiders, as they kept turning out creepier than I had intended. My final html file and the spider templates I ended up with can be downloaded here.
I put a projector on the roof above the front path and hid the kinect sensor in the bushes nearby. It was a huge hit with lots of laughing and stomping. Several kids were so busy stomping away that they forgot to come ask for candy. I’ll definitely set this back up next year, and I’ll be keeping it in mind as it could be a ton of fun for different kinds of interactive games on special occasions for my little guy and his friends.
Again, my thanks to John Hardy and the guys for their software! Let me know if you have any questions!
