PlayFM supports the HTW CAVE within the context of the long night of sciences

For the long night of sciences on the 28.05.2011 the department 4 of HTW has presented its own CAVE. This was build under the charge of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Jung. The system consists of 3 retrojection walls, 8 computers and projectors. The stereo image will be projected on 3 sides plus the ground. stereo projection Headtracking with Kinect™ Unity­3D™ integration For this purpose Frank (PlayFM team) enhanced the Room of Shadow demo of Unity 3D. Most of the materials were revised, Depth of Field (DoF) was added as well as an auto focus system. The shaders were replaced with RIM lighting shaders. The Headtracking in combination with the stereo projection gives an intense immersive feedback inside the CAVE. Allthough the way to the Holodeck is quite far…  I would like to have such a system in my living room This is a web player version of the PlayFM Room of Shadow for watching.

Unity3D combination of Steering Behaviour and A*Pathfinding

To make it possible to fill our virtual office with virtual people they have to be capable of going from A to B. Likewise they should dodge themselves. The following prototype demonstrates this behaviour. In each case every NonPlayerCharacter (NPCs) shall collect a particular box. When the box was found it continues with a new  box. Once a box is a target of a NPC it will get a discoloration. F1 – activate main menu (options, credits, …) F2 – shift among “Fullscreen” and “Windowed Mode” “new Boxes” – create boxes “new NPCs” – create NPCs “collect them!” – demand the NPCs to collect all boxes in turn “NPC Collision” – start/stops the collision of NPCs
