WorldWide Telescope and Kinect on really big screen at SC11
For the last couple of days at Supercomputer 2011 we’ve been demoing WorldWide Telescope being driven via Kinect for Windows – probably the single largest Kinect driven application out there. While we’ve done something like this before (ie. Mix’11), this time we partnered with Scalable Display Technologies and NVIDIA to create a 18x7 foot single machine display. The whole demo is powered with one PC, connected to two Nvidia Quadro Plex devices to drive 8 projectors. The projector alignment and blending was accomplished via the Scalable Display Manager software. This made it one very large desktop – if you look in the bottom right corner of the screen you can see the notification bar
Beyond it being a great demo, it also showcased how this could be built with shipping technologies in a short time.
