Kinect Web Kiosk Framework

Ciril Bohak & Matija Marolt


In this paper we present a web kiosk framework based on Kinect sensor. The main idea is to use the framework for creation of simple interactive presentations for informing, advertising and presenting knowledge to the public. The use of such a framework simplifies adaptation of existing web materials for presentation with the kiosk. We can also make use of touchless interaction for browsing through the interactive content, to animate the user and encourage her to spend more time browsing the presented content. We present the structure of the framework and a simple case study on using the framework as an interactive presentation platform and as an education resource. The developed framework has been used for presenting information on educational programs at Faculty of Computer and Information Science, University of Ljubljana.
