Abstract

The proposed Medianeum system consists in an interactive installation allowing general audiences to explore a timeline and access informational multimedia data such as texts, images and video.

Through a Microsoft Kinect depth sensor, users’ skeletons are captured and their gestures are tracked to interact with the data presented on a screen in an ergonomic way.

The graphical user interface is built upon ProcesSwing, our version of the Processing IDE embedded into a standard Swing Java GUI widget toolkit application, and the TimelineJS library from Vérité.co/Northwestern University, allowing to create online, personalized and interactive timelines that mash up historical events, sorted in definable categories.
