Sniff: Interactive digital dog

Created by Karolina Sobecka and software design by Jim George, SNIFF is a light projection of a 3D dog that also happens to dynamically interact with the viewer.

As you walk down the street you are approached by a dog. He is on his guard trying to discern your intentions. He will follow you and interpret your gestures as friendly or aggressive. He will try to engage you in a relationship and get you to pay attention to him.

This is on display through September 20th at 84 Havenmeyer Street in Brooklyn, New York. This project is definitely a win, especially for a certain blogger who likes to greet all dogs he passes on the street with an effusive “hello” and wave.
