Secret Passageways (with avatar faces)


Secret Passageways
In the board game Clue, one key to success involves proper use of the secret passageways that connect various rooms in the mansion.
 
Inspired by these secret corridors, this exhibit presents virtual passageways connecting various locations on campus and allows visitors to talk with others via specially created avatar faces.  Using facial motion capture technology, facial expressions of a user are captured and are used to control these avatar faces, which are, in turn, viewed by others across campus.
