The project was developed for the MGM Casino in Detroit, USA. The mandate was to create an interactive space in the casino buffet. A giant screen was installed and shows cooking utensils suspended. The spatial position of visitors is tracked in real time and applied to the position of utensils on the screen. Each visitor is associated with a utensil that follow them. The buffet installation is a fun experience for visitor and the interactive game very easy to understand.
