We used a leap-motion to track gestures. These inputs trigger certain videos in our system. The web browser is directly mapped on the face model which is right in front of you to get a more immersive experience.
Select a Facepainting
This world map shows different interactive points. Once you hover over a point you'll see more information. The circle starts to fill yellow and indicates that you're selecting it. The animation starts.
Illustrations & Animations
After researching the most iconic regional tribes, we made a selection and illustrated them. With AfterEffects we animated each asset to generate short but expressive sequences.
Gestures & Interface
After the animation ends, an interface will appear on the canvas. It displays a short description about the seen portrait. On the left, you have a world map with you're current position.
