Pigeon Sim allows you to fly around a virtual London, using gestures to control your height and direction. Flap your arms to fly higher, lean to one side to bank, and experience the city from an entirely new perspective as you swoop and soar across it.
The simulator uses a Microsoft Kinect to detect your movements, and displays London using the Google Earth 3D plugin. CASA doctoral researcher Flora Roumpani will be talking about how we visualize cities in 3D, and ways in which we can interact with them.
