TV Lets You Reach In And Play With On-Screen Objects
A television set that allows you to interact with a virtual world in real time.
Portals is a successfully funded tech project on Kickstarter that allows users to reach into a television box and interact with objects in real time. Created by Jayne Vidheecharoen, a media student at the Art Center College of Design in California, Portals aims to be a gateway between reality and a parallel fantasy world.
Vidheecharoen demonstrates a Portal prototype by using Google Streetview. Through utilizinga green screen and also touch screen capabilities, Vidheecharoen uncannily picks up a miniature person with her hand and even navigates the streets by sliding her finger on the road.
