Symposium:


Session Title:

  • Interactivity and Immersion

Presentation Title:

  • Kinect-Based Rgb Detection for ‘Smart’ Costume Interaction

Abstract:

  • This paper is an overview of a Kinect-based RGB detection software developed as part of an ongoing ‘Smart’ (Smart Textiles and Wearable Technology in Pervasive Computing Environments) Costume project. The project involved a multi-disciplinary team in the domains of textile design, engineering and computer science. In this work we aimed to establish initial studies on how the Microsoft Kinect performs in tracking a ‘smart’ costume that has thermochromic elements under different lighting conditions. We explain the computer application capable of detecting, tracking and measuring colour changes (Red, Blue and Green) created using the Microsoft Kinect API.
