Interactive Control of Dance Groups Using Kinect

Asako Soga, Itsuo Yoshida

Abstract

This paper describes a system that can control the CG animation of dance groups in a virtual world by recognizing gestures using Kinect in real time. The system can change the formation of CG dancers by right-arm gestures and their motions by left-arm gestures. Moreover, a virtual camera is controlled by the gestures of both arms. The rotational data of the joints are used to recognize each arm gesture to control the dance groups, and the translational data of the joints are used to control the virtual camera. Since the system recognizes both arm gestures at the same time, users can control two or more objects by a combination of gestures.
