Mahdi Bahrami, Joram van Loenen, Joost Eggermont and I developed on interactive installation for the TonTonClub in Westerpark – Amsterdam. The game is inspired by “Room Racers” which is made by Lieven van Velthoven ( see : //lievenvv.com/Projects/RoomRacers.htm )
A racegame is played on a bar using custom made joysticks. While enjoying a beer visitors can play a simple race game.. but beware.. the playing field can be altered by moving real world obstacles around the bar.
My main responsibility was getting the obstacle recognition working using openCV and the Kinect. Mahdi Bahrami did most of the gameplay programming.
