AnimatedMe is an interactive installation that allows visitors to become the characters their you draw. Characters are created with a simple drawing application at animatedme.co.uk and once saved the characters become immediately available in the installation for participants to be transformed into.
Participants stood in front of the installation are tracked with a Kinect sensor that sees their skeletal position and this data is used to immediately transform them into a character from the library, with the characters mirroring their every move! Characters can easily be selected by the participant by simply raising their hands above their heads or manually by a gallery assitant.
AnimatedMe was commissioned by Phoenix Square Leicester as part of the The Spark Children’s Arts Festival.
