‘Mirror’ Floor Reflects An Animated Version Of People Standing On It
GravitySpace was developed at the Hassno Plattner Institute in Germany and can sense your every step.
Digital meets physical in a unique way with GravitySpace, a new approach to tracking people and objects indoors. This smart pressure-sensing floor can act like a ‘mirror,’ generating computer animations that look and act like the people walking on it.
It can reconstruct objects in direct contact with it “by first identifying objects based on their texture and then applying inverse kinematics.” GravitySpace was developed in the Human Computer Interaction Lab at the Hasso Plattner Institute in Germany, with funding from Microsoft Research in Cambridge, UK.
