The Virtual Fluid application would have been impossible many years ago. But now, with better, juicier graphic cards and processors, the folks at Inition were able to create a very cool graphic interaction application. This is how it works: you’ve got a camera filming you. That video is then interpreted by the software, and allows you to intereact, in real time, with virtual objects projected on a screen. For example, the screen will have rain drops falling. As you as you come into the field, the rain bouces off you, or collects in a cranny in your arm, or rolls around your back, or a thousand other awesome things.
And yeah, I know none of this sounds terribly exciting when it’s just described. That’s why there’s a video inside for y’all to enjoy. We’ll leave it up to you to come up with practical applications for such a system.
