Apropos of Google’s Move Mirror project (mentioned last week), here’s a similar idea:
Kinemetagraph reflects the bodily movement of the visitor in real time with a matching pose from the history of Hollywood cinema. To achieve this, it correlates live motion capture data using Kinect-based “skeleton tracking” to an open-source computer vision research dataset of 20,000 Hollywood film stills with included character pose metadata for each image.
The notable thing, I think, is that what required a dedicated hardware sensor a couple of years ago can now be done plug-in-free using just a browser and webcam. Progress!
