The zodiac is a diagram used by astrologers to represent the positions of the planets and stars. It is divided into twelve sections, each of which has its own name and symbol. The zodiac is used to try to calculate the influence of the planets on people’s lives.
This project is to provide a playful way to learn information about zodiac for both interactors and audiences.
It’s based on Leap Motion.
There are three major hand gestures applied in my project: pinch, spread and swipe.
Because of the inaccuracy of hand gesture data received by Leap Motion, I design big operations zone and in some cases, expand them.
As it's difficult to expect the result of one gesture operation. I provide a complete feedback system of these operations.
When interactors' hands swipe above Leap Motion, the current zodiac will switch to previous or next zodiac sign. In this way, if the interactor is now working on one zodiac sign and accidently swipe his hand, the current working draft will not save. Thus, I provide a confirm window to check whether to jump.
During the course exhibition, I got the feedback from the course professor: "It's the most polished project in the exhibition."
