Project 1 – Sarika Bajaj

This project allows a person via the Kinect to use their hand to move around balls in a virtual ball pit. Much of this patch has been built upon some of the dp.kinect2 reference patches as well as a reference from, integrating the two by creating a kinect system that uses the closest player’s right hand to move around the main movable physics force. Most of the work in this project involved figuring out what good bounding boxes would be in the physical world and in the virtual world/how the user would actually interact with the Kinect (I wanted the output animation to be very obviously user controlled – almost painfully so). Additionally, I had some fun changing the aesthetics of the actual ball system.
