Interactive Kinect installation

For a university assignment I was tasked with the challenge of representing a fictional digital agency, named Hex, as an interactive installation.

I created an installation that uses the Xbox Kinect with Processing to display the user on screen which can interact with hexagons (derived from our name Hex) and also using the colour palette from our brand bible created by another student in my group.

On the bottom left of the screen is a photo which is taken of the user at set intervals using a Raspberry Pi running headlessly and hooked up to a Xbox 360 webcam. The Pi then uploads this to the Hex twitter account and Processing then receives this image via the Twitter streaming API and displays it instantly.
