For the first time ever anyone with a computer, web camera and projector can create an interactive environment. Po-motion allows advertisers, teachers & event planners a cheap, simple way to engage their audience. Transform a blank floor or wall into an interactive scene that changes when people walk past or over it.
“We created Po-motion with the desire to make interactive projections affordable and easy to set up for everyone” said PO-MO Inc. Artistic Director Meghan Athavale. “It’s been really encouraging to see how our users have embraced the software. Most of the new features we add to the software are ideas submitted through our feedback form.”
Once users have downloaded the free software from the Po-motion site, they can use one of the eight scenes that come bundled with the software to bring their floor or wall to life. Additional content can be purchased online, with themes ranging from seasonal holidays to special events like weddings.
“We’re always adding new scenes” said Curtis Wachs, programmer and co-creator of Po-motion. “Our users often request custom content and we do our best to deliver it. Some ideas are a one time use while others are made available to the whole community.”
In September 2011, Po-motion will be launching the first of a series of online tools to allow users to customize and build their own interactive floor and wall scenes.
