Here’s a few examples of how the Microsoft Kinect system can be used with digital signage. Some are just prototypes but it’s the innovative possibilities that makes the technology so powerful.

The SementicMap – Microsoft Research

Basically the SemanticMap, The Next Step In Public Information and Navigation On The Go is a Digital signage prototype featuring proximity detection, face recognition and gesture interaction technologies developed in Microsoft Research Asia. The system provides the right amount and detail of map-related information according to the user’s distance from the display. It’s a bit had to understand watching the video.

This looks like it’s a home made video. When you watch the video, just keep in mind never to put a screen on the side like that!

The video was a bit hard to follow due to all the shaking but you’ll get the idea. Below is the X2O implementation with KINECT camera and TWITTER integration in a Digital Signage solution.
