Interactive installation at SAP to present the winners of the Hasso Plattner Founders' Award
This interactive installation shows the Hasso Plattner Founders’ Award winners and has been set up not only in SAP’s headquarters in Walldorf, but in Shanghai, Bangalore and Palo Alto as well.
Commissioned by Ars Electronica Futurelab, Garamantis designed the interactive software to present the awardees, and information on them, on four screens, the special feature here being the dynamic mutability of the winners’ portraits: They automatically orient themselves to the nearest viewer. A laser range finder, used here as a person detector, determines the position of the person closest to the screen. The portraits on screen come alive with the help of video footage and further information.
