Both interactive and pedagogical, traditional exhibition and gameplay blend to allow novice and experienced players to discover a multifaceted gaming universe. Here’s a video (in French) about the exhibition that happened at “La Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie” (Paris, France):

Aerys used Minko to build an augmented reality experiment, in which you can take a picture of yourself in a costume of various famous video game characters (Ezio, Shepard, Sam Fisher…). Models were kindly provided by their respective owners.

Technically, depth capture is done thanks to a Kinect device and 3D rendering is powered by Minko. We also used a second camera to compensate the weak resolution of the Kinect RGB camera.

The exhibition is for everybody and is open until August 24, 2014.
