This looks like a funny mashup of Microsoft Kinect and Google Maps Street View. It’s named “Remote Strolling” – virtual strolling that feels almost physically real.
The creators of this Remote Strolling video explain the idea behind it on vimeo:
Using a public display with a tracking device like Microsoft Kinect, a person can stroll around in a virtual representation of the distant place, using their body as a controller. Turning and tilting their body lets them look around, while they can move by jumping or walking in place. The physical interaction makes the strolling feel more real.
