Glowing Pathfinder Bugs installation puts the 'Minority Report' interface to good use - in a sand box (video)
Nestled among the various booths at SIGGRAPH 2010 visitors got to check out a unique installation called Glowing Pathfinder Bugs. Created by Squidsoup and Anthony Rowe, this interactive art piece uses projectors to place "bugs" made out of light in a sandbox, coupled with a 3D gesture-based interface that allows people to pick up, move, and even breed the creatures. The system even takes the topography of the sand itself into consideration: altering the sand will alter the bug's path. It's nice to see someone put an interface technology to good use for a change! Video after the break.
