[Project] Robots in the Nieman Marcus window!
On November 20, 2010, KumoTek unveiled a first-of-its-kind interactive holiday window display, featuring our KT-X humanoid robots and user activated Augmented Reality (AR) at Neiman Marcus’ flagship store in downtown Dallas, Texas. The AR was developed in collaboration with Chicago based Tribeca Flashpoint
Acedemy. The event attracted more than 5,000 people on opening day and has entertained over 50,000 guests since the launch.
Visitors to the Neiman Marcus window are able to use either their smart phones or paper markers with embedded codes used for triggering virtual worlds and 3D characters on large LCD screens in front of them. Additionally, advanced face detection software creates an illusion of alien face morphing on a large ceiling mounted monitors for a special guest experience.
One station has an interactive character of our KT-X humanoid robot, others have animated rockets blasting off into space and solar systems revolving in the palm of your hand. Best of all, visitors can take the experience home with them and re-live it over the Neiman Marcus
