Over just two days 4 team members from Cyber-Duck designed and built the Kinect Gallery Application, which enables gallery visitors to scroll and navigate through artists portfolios. This was achieved as part of the Quack Hack, a UX/coding Hackathon held in May 2012.
When exploring an art gallery, visitors are only able to see as many works of art as there is space for in the room. Some visual displays often have an automatic slideshow set up, meaning that visitors have no control in how long they view each piece. If there is any form of portfolio selection, say, on a touch screen the artist risks having the display smeared by finger prints.
Build a standalone app within 48 hours that allows visitors to navigate through artist portfolios (and different types of artists) using hand movements and gestures (based on Microsoft Kinect technology). This way the user is engaged in selecting the art they wish to see, whist standing in-front of a HD TV screen!
