Promenade architecturale en multi-touch

German researchers at the Fraunhofer IGD have devised a new way to see architecture in three dimensions. A very intuitive and playful process.

Developed by Fraunhofer IGD, Computer graphics research organization based in Darmstadt, the installation consists of a wall using video projection surface and a touch interactive table incorporating technology Multi touch (Multi-touch in French).

Simple and ergonomic, the system offers a virtual tour of an architecture in which the user is moving through the movement of his fingers on the plans posted on the touch table. The user drags and thus moves his fingers on Plans to control the movement of the virtual camera, a finger to move its position, a second finger making it possible to vary the orientation. On the table plans can also be moved, rotated, zoomed or reduced using one or more fingers.

Check out a video demonstration of this technology:
