The project titled ‘Touch the Train Window’ was created by the Japanese audiovisual collective Salad (aka Particle at Rest). The project converts a train window into an augmented reality screen, which allows users to place objects as an overlay of the actual scenery and watch them go by as the train moves in real-time.
The installation is created using Microsoft Kinect, GPS tracking, a projector, an iPhone, and openFrameworks. The innovative idea definitely makes a long train journey more fun. Watch the clip below to see how the interactive window works.
