How much is that doggy in the window?

That doggy’s not for sale. Her name is Sniff. One of the better reactive video installations I’ve seen in a long time. A projected 3D dog reacts to passersby. The – simple, playful and engaging.

The level of engagement and the formation of an emotional is really what interests me here. Often reactive video is sluggish, too abstract or has some kind of learning curve. Using a familiar paradigm – approaching a strange dog is an apprehensive experience for both you and the dog, creates an emotive virtual experience. And everyone loves puppies.

Sniff was created by Karolina Sobecka and Jim George using a combination of Open Frameworks and the Unity 3D game engine; using an infra-red camera for motion tracking. Here’s how the tracking works:
