Augmented Reality Theater (AR+RFID) @ unDEAF, satellite event of the Dutch Electronic Art Festival 2007, Rotterdam
Augmented Reality Theater is an interactive installation with virtual 3D animated puppets in AR, data-gloves and physical objects tagged with RFID. For the first time both technologies – Augmented Reality and Radio Frequency Identification – have been combined in an entertaining, interactive show pushing traditional puppet theater to the 21st century. Using a data-glove, the user is able to control the position and facial expression of the puppet in Augmented Reality. Besides that various physical objects tagged with RFID are used to trigger changes in the puppet's behaviour and looks. Check the report from unDEAF for more info, videos and pictures!
