IllumiRoom (http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/illumiroom/) demonstrated how projection mapping can enhance entertainment. RoomAlive (http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/roomalive/) prototyped turning any room into an interactive, augmented experience. In this session, Andy Wilson (Microsoft Research) teaches the key concepts behind these projects including: Kinect and projector calibration, networking multiple Kinect sensors together, and displaying dynamic AR objects in real-time. Additionally, all tools and source code used in the session will be released on GitHub to enable you to make use of these techniques in your own projects. Speaker: Ben Lower.
