Google Brings Static Rooms Alive With Tracking Cameras

Cameras installed in the ceiling can track people (or other things) and the room would react with certain responses depending on the position of a person or object. In a published example, a room followed a person by showing colored circles on the floor.

Called "Interactive Spaces", the software was developed by Google and Rockwell LAB. It is currently available as an initial source release with a 47-page documentation and a final release is planned to be made available sometime in the future. Interactive Spaces is written in Java and can run on any platform that supports the language.

At this time, Google is offering a "collection of libraries" that enable a developer to create and implement activities that run in an interactive space. According to the company, Interactive Spaces supports additional languages such as Javascript and Python. Developers can also choose to run native applications written in C++.

    john_4Well since Google is in bed with the Fascist/Marxist Obama regime this does not surprise me. Just ask the food Nazi Mayor Bloomberg of NYC.


    John_4 could explain me how someone can Fascist and Marxist at the same time? Because you are on a revolutionary concept here. I don't really give an interest to Obama regime as I'm not american, but the very idea of him being at the same time Fascist AND Marxist really wake me up. Please show me!

    Please pardon John_4 since he's a dummy.

    Hey John_4: Did you know Bush administration spied on Americans without warrant? Did you know that ATT created data backroom for Bush administration spies so they can tap any customer info they want without court order they're supposed to go through? https://www.eff.org/nsa/faq/
    This article doesn't even mention Google cooperating with Obama administration like ATT did with Bush administration.
