At this year’s ComplexCon, Intel used its presence to showcase some truly incredible cutting-edge technology. Their experience, dubbed Neo-Tokyo, included an interactive walkway powered by Intel RealSense cameras, a photo booth of the future in the form of Pikazo, and a virtual reality experience built in partnership with Linkin Park and McFlyy.
The first portion of the activation gave guests an experience that was—quite literally—hands-on. Using Intel’s RealSense technology, visitors to Neo-Tokyo could interact with art integrated within the LED walls using hand and body gestures. This interactive walkway, featured art from LA’s own Anime inspired artist, McFlyy, as well as characters created by venerable motion graphics artist, Esteban Diacono. Once consumers were on the walkway, and their gestures were within proximity of the Intel RealSense cameras, reactions in the art were triggered; such as, Esteban’s figures beginning to break dance, or McFlyy’s art illuminating then changing to show another piece. McFlyy even showed up at the convention each day to sign limited prints for his extremely excited audience. Other famous visitors of Neo-Tokyo included, Big K.R.I.T., Karreuche, Emory Jones, and more.
