The Project

Fishbowl is an interactive public virtual display that works with the Kinect to track user motion. When someone walks up to the projected aquarium, the Kinect projects their outline onto the water like a shadow. When the shadow reaches the fish, they scurry away making a satisfying rippling sound :)
