Intel researchers recently demonstrated, at Research@Intel Day 2010, a future where you could simply place an item of food on your kitchen countertop, and with a few finger strokes, locate recipes that incorporate that item. You could even put multiple food items on the counter and search for recipes that include all those ingredients. "Object-Aware Situated Interactive System" ("OASIS") combines real-time computer vision algorithms, 3D cameras, and micro-projection for fast recognition and tracking of everyday physical objects and gestures. The Intel demonstration uses displays projected on everyday household surfaces to create interactive islands for in-home applications. It can be easily retrofitted to any home, any room and almost any horizontal or vertical surface. The project has interesting implications for future capabilities around the home.
