Tango Chen, Friend of the Galley, is back with a interesting usage of the Kinect, think cosplay for your feet... :)
The virtual shoe fitting store from Goertz in 2012 is quite impressing. They used 3 original Kinects. I decided to make my virtual shoe fitting application with a Kinect v2 last month. It’s still something rare, though we’ve seen many virtual dressing room demos.
I placed the Kinect low on a box, so it can capture my feet only. In this case, we can see more details of the shoe. But, I’ll need to write my own feet tracking algorithm as the original body tracking won’t work. This is one of the big challenges.
Another challenge is that I need to hide some parts of the shoes that covered by my feet. If you’ve ever tried implementing the virtual dressing room, you’ll also face this problem. Using single-sided materials is one of the solutions. But it won’t work in some cases and it’s flawed. For some reasons, I’d keep my solution private. ;)
Overall, the application doesn’t work very well due to the CPU capability and the current algorithm. But I enjoy the process of making it!
