Kinect Creates Imaginary World for Ballet

Today's inspirational post shows how the Kinect continues to evolve performance art.

Kinect-Powered Stage Creates Imaginary World for Ballet

Pioneering technology enables ballet to move into modern times.

The Paris-based contemporary ballet Mr. & Mrs. Dream features a high-tech set that brilliantly combines virtual reality with live dance. Kinect sensors are placed above the stage to track the dancers’ movements and the resulting effects immerse the audience into a fantasy world.

Created by software engineering company Dassault Systemes, the 3D set allows the performance to be mobile and to be reproduced at any venue as they plan to tour around the world in the future.
