Beamatron: Kinect enabled augmented reality concept from Microsoft Research

March 15, 2012 by dieGopen Leave a reply »

Beamatron is an example of the trend Microsoft is exploring that blends the physical world with the virtual world. It’s augmented reality concept that combines a projector and Kinect sensor on a pan tilt moving head – of the kind you may find in a nightclub. The setup utilizes KinectFusion to build a 3D model of a space and enables projected graphics to react in physically appropriate ways. For example a virtual car can be driven around the floor of the room bumping into actual obstacles and running over real ramps.
