Augmented Shadow is a project created by Joon Moon a programmer, designer who is exploring the realm of interaction, generative code and motion design on a basis of visual communication design. He is currently studying at MFA Design & Technology, Parsons, NY, USA were he submitted this project for his thesis you can check out more nice projects at the Parsons MFADT Thesis 2010.
Concept (from website)
Augmented Shadow is a design experiment producing an artificial shadow effect through the use of tangible objects, blocks, on a displayable tabletop interface. Its goal is to offer a new type of user-experience. The project plays on the fact that shadows present distorted silhouettes depending on the light. Augmented Shadows take the distortion effect into the realm of fantasy. Shadows display below the objects according to the physics of the real world. However, the shadows themselves transform the objects into houses, occupied by shadow creatures. By moving the blocks around the table the user sets off series of reactions within this new fantasy ecosystem.
This experiment brings augmented reality to the tabletop cheap adipex without a prescription by way of a tangible interface. The shadow effect is an ‘interface metaphor.’ Second, the unexpected user experience results from manipulating the users’ visual perceptions, expectations, and imagination to inspire re-perception and new understanding. Therefore, users can play with the shadows lying on the boundary between the real, virtual, and fantasy.
