"Touch the train window !" by Salad

The Salad team in Japan created a poetic interactive installation for train travels. When the passenger touches the window, a object is projected in the landscape according to the area of the window which was touched. In the background or in the sky : a hot-air balloon or a plane appears. In the foreground : a person or a car appears.

This works with a GPS, Kinect, and a projector, programed with openFrameworks.

Even if we assume the window is covered with some semi transparent material the projected images would always be lighter than the landscape behind. As I see it it must either be a very advanced lcd-screen train window - but in the video we see a video projector as if video projection is used. Otherwise the video must simply be a fictional example created through video editing.

 Hello,

Indeed it works with a projector Casio XJ 560.

The person brings a transparent screen when he gets in the train. You can see it at 0:19 in the video. It may be the solution.
