Fracture.io by MPC Digital NY is a beautiful and fun project. It aims to take the photo booth experience to a new level by capturing 3D point clouds of the people inside and them modifying the files before displaying them. I like this project because it looks great and gives people a friendly place to play with the technology. I’m impressed by how many technologies work together here (Kinects, open frameworks, unity, and more). I think that this project could have done a better job making these images interesting. There isn’t much to be gained from looking at them because everything they add is purely decorative. One potential path this could go down is to make the added geometry some kinda of data visualization about the person/body.
