Had heard of this before, but hadn’t seen the video. Looks like an interesting direction for tangibly interacting with screen media. Would be great to see a selection of different collapsable tools (particularly ones for manipulating sounds!)
Join the discussion and tell us your opinion.
What I find the most interesting about this video is the idea of headtracking + tabletop interfaces… not so the collapsible stick.
in which case have you seen the Nintendo 3DS console?
it uses a similar perspective-shift technique as this video (and Jonny Lee’s work) but uses eye tracking so no headmounted tracker/LED’s are needed… will be interesting to see the eye-tracking technique scaled up to a full tabletop system!
