Terminator meets Minority Report – Augmented Reality and gesture control with 3D cameras
What if face detection could help you identifying people standing in front of you? What if you could control a quadrocopter using gesture control only? Using Augmented Reality glasses and modern 3D cameras the maker team around Thomas Endres and Martin Förtsch created stunning showcases demonstrating the current state of the art in these fields of application. The developers will talk about current camera and AR glasses technology. But they will also show some demos and give an insight into their programs from capturing the camera signals up to displaying them on a VR display.
Speakers: Thomas Endres & Martin Förtsch
