Jump into the world of weather! Weather Worlds is an interactive installation that grants children weather controlling superpowers.  

Utilizing a camera and real-time greenscreening, the installation allows children to see themselves immersed in an interactive and dynamic environment.  The custom computer vision system tracks the heads, hands, feet and movement of children on the platform and also recognizes gestures.  Using their bodies children can conjure a storm, release a twisting tornado or rain down bolts of lightning from their fingertips.  There are mighty wind fields to move through, stomping earthquakes, light bending sunshine and blizzards that will make you shiver!

Weather Worlds was made possible by La Gaîté Lyrique, Paris and the TIFF Kids Digiplayspace in Toronto.
