Customized dance pods and gesture technology
At the Sony Wonder Technology Lab’s Dance Motion Capture interactive, visitors can step into a dance pod and bust a move using 3D characters. Using gesture recognition, they select their favorite music and animated character to control. Markerless motion capture technology records the visitors’ movements- first in a rehearsal mode and then in “performance” mode. The visitor then ‘becomes’ their animated character, which matches every step of their movements. At the end of the dance, their animated character drops into one of a dozen virtual 3D environments and played back on a large screen for everyone to enjoy.
