Kinect-Enabled Ghost in the Shell Interface Exhibited

Pop-up shop recreates anime's interactive cyberspace environment with 3D sensor

Using Microsoft's Kinect Sensor, the technology design firm kayac recreated the cyberspace enivironment from the Ghost in the Shell franchise for a pop-up premium shop that is promoting the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society 3D anime film.

The premium shop is opening at the Shibuya Parco department store in Tokyo on Thursday — two days before the March 26 opening of the stereoscopic 3D version of the film. The general public can visit the shop and its cyberspace recreation for free until April 19.

Microsoft sells the Kinect as a "controller-free" 3D device for the Xbox 360 game console, but independent programmers have developed software that lets personal computers connect to the Kinect Sensor, too. The Ghost in the Shell S.A.C. premium shop uses a personal computer for its interactive setup.
