For the 60th Anniversary of the famous pearl brand Tasaki, LM3LABS has developed a unique interactive system which amazed 600 guests at the opening ceremony and will continue at Tasaki’s Gallery in Ginza for a month.

The i-Portrait system brings together multiple LM3LABS technologies into a single integrated system.

Catchyoo FaceTracker tracks people in the room and crops their face with golden proportions, dynamically.

Their face is projected on a large screen made of ping pong balls which recalls pearls.

By pointing their hand to the screen, guests distantly interact with 3DFeel to launch the countdown.

A picture is taken and processed by LM3LABS’ shaders to “beautify” the face with an elegant black and white treatment.

Mailbot and Facebot allows the user to get their picture on their smartphone, in high quality, within 1 minute, while posting it on Tasaki’s dedicated Facebook page.

In the Gallery, Tasaki’s staff use PrintBot to print pictures and offer to their guests.

The system is crowd proof. It accommodates tens of people in a small space giving priority to the person in front even with very close proximity to each other.

LM3LABS also developed a mobile app which transforms the guest’s picture into an interactive set of pearls for a very personal souvenir (not deployed).

i-Portrait, the name of the system, can be deployed for events or fixed installation within a few tens of minutes.

The system can be experimented at Tasaki Gallery in Ginza until June 30, 2014.

Michelin Japan moved their HQ within Tokyo and seized the opportunity to tap LM3LABS for a new interactive entrance. The objective was to engage visitors, within 5mn, in a discovery of various Michelin activities (from airplane tires to gourmet guides to your car’s tires).

LM3LABS deployed a 60″ interactive screen based on Ubiq’window 150.

From a minimal content source (Michelin’s web site and a few images), LM3LABS created a Flash application which allows direct and intuitive access to Michelin key information.

 

 

3D touchless interface for Tohoku University Sendai

December 28th, 2012 | Posted in 3D, Case Study, Finger Tracking, Hand tracking, Movies, Showrooms, Ubiq'window, Ubiqwindow's Installations | 1 Comment »

Sendai has made the headlines in 2011 as a victim of the major tsunami that stroke Japan’s North East seashore and the Daiichi nuclear power plant catastrophe.

As a result of this terrible event, Tohoku University is now focusing their research on alternative power generation solutions and they equipped with a complex solar system. As researchers, they need to communicate on the result of their work and they tapped on LM3LABS for creating a futuristic interface for presenting their research.

LM3LABS used holographic projection with Ubiq’window to create a very large interactive surface. The result is an amazing 3D feeling. Content can be navigated with hands without any contact with the surface which allows smooth and swift actions.

Ubiq’window can be bought online on LM3LABS shop.

When Body Tracking meets AR, Magic and Smiles

June 4th, 2012 | Posted in 3D, 3Dfeel, Advertising, Augmented Reality, Body Tracking, Business, Case Study, Events, Hand tracking, Movies, Retail, Showrooms | 1 Comment »

Here are a few images from a project completed for a famous French luxury brand in Japan.
The objective was to promote a gold bracelet in a totally new way, engage a thinking like “how is it on me?” and leave guests with an amazing souvenir that they want to share online.

But wait! How does it work? How could it find people wrist? Let’s break the magic.
In stealth mode, LM3LABS’ 3DFeel sensor tracks guest’s skeletton. Even distant guests were in the radar, precisely tracked and numbered, one by one. As the guest come closer to the camera, they discover themselves wearing the jewel at their wrist, on the screen. 3DFeel identifies the right arm from the left one, it calculates the distance to the hand so that the bracelet is correctly positioned, it understands the position of the elbow and shoulder (3D rotation also known as quaternion matrix) so that the bracelet matches the arm position. The final process is to “extrude” the arm flesh (or cloth) in the video stream to fit the 3D bracelet into it. All this frame by frame.

Surprise, smile, picture. 1, 2, 3, Flash!
A picture is taken and appears right on the side screen with a unique number.
Guests could get their picture by e-mail while we were feeding our database with their e-mail address, name and picture.

The operation has been a huge success with thousands of smiling pictures and a large buzz on fashion blogs in Japan.

The technology in action:

a few minutes of happy people…
