Finally, an interactive installation for festival crowds!

Sydney-based studio Rezon8 came up with a way to make music festival goers interact even more by immersing them in an augmented reality system where imaginary creatures will frolic with you.  Great interactive things come from Australia! In “Curious Creatures,” you can interact with these strange animals as if it were a projected petting zoo (now there’s an idea…)! The piece was a finalist in SXSW Interactive this year. Check out the videos below for a peek at how it was done:
