Switching Wall - Gesture based, interactive media installation

Final thesis at Georg-Simon-Ohm Hochschule, Nürnberg
Agency: Werbe-Studio Hohmann, Berlin
Year: 2008/2009

The Switching Wall is a set of seamless plasma screens, that reacts on the movement in front of it. A camera on top of the screens detects movements and gestures of users, who can interact with a Flash Application by just moving their hands.

As a prototype, the installation was used to show concepts of different application possibilities that could be used on trade fair stands. For testing purposes a game was created in which users could score points by collecting bubbles (see the video below). The thesis was realized at Werbe-Studio Hohmann in Berlin, an agency that creates corporate architectures for trade fairs, showrooms and exhebitions.
