In a follow up to my post yesterday on a Lego molding machine made of Lego, and a post I did over a year ago on using the human body as an input device, I bring you one of Intel‘s latest innovations from CES 2011 exploring alternative input devices. In the case of this video, they are using Lego creations and projected imagery to set the stage.
While the interaction appears elementary, the computing power behind this set up is pretty amazing. The setup requires 3D object recognition, gesture recognition and graphical interfaces running in real-time. This is huge step for more sophisticated augmented reality experiences.
