Case Study:

Gestural Interface Installation for Conservative Party Conference


The Brief

To create a giant ‘Interactive Policy Wall’ installation for Blitz Communications at the Conservative Party Conference.

Our Solution

Delegates interacted and expressed their views on a number of policy areas using a ‘Minority Report’ style interface. The interactive was created from the ground up by Inition, with software development, motion graphics and interface to dual-Kinect controllers. To interact and select policies, participants simply raised their hand to point to their preferred choice as they floated past on a 5m wide screen.

Inition developed a novel solution with two Kinect cameras to cover a wide area, allowing multiple people to interact simultaneously. Flocking algorithms were used to give the interface a feeling of playful interactivity.

The Results

The installation went live over the 4 days of the conference held at Manchester’s Central Convention Complex. Over 500 people interacted with the wall which was deployed in the conference atrium.
