Open Exhibits and GestureWorks Built Installations

One of great things about creating authoring software is seeing the creative things that people make with it. In the last week, we’ve come across two interesting installations; one built with GestureWorks (our commercial multitouch framework) and one developed with Open Exhibits software (the open, educational software initiative that we are leading).

Just last week week in Tech Crunch (Video: Kinect-Controlled Gigapixel Image Exploration) we saw an installation at the University of Lincoln in the UK in which visitors interact with gigapixel photographs.  The installation was developed by Sam Cox who used our Open Exhibits TUIO Kinect and Gigapixel Viewer module. He added the ability for visitors to “step switch” between gigapixel scenes. He also added ambient sound and the ability to print zoomed in scenes. Check out the video below.
You can learn more about this installation on the Gigalinc website.

Yesterday we came across an interesting three-screen kiosk installation developed by the Spinifex Group for the Sydney Theatre Company. They used GestureWorks and FDT to develop an Adobe AIR desktop application which allows visitors to learn how the Sydney Theatre Company is reducing their carbon footprint. You can learn more about this installation and see a video of it in action on Karkaris.com.
