Pointing at pointers

Just found this via Kyle McDonald – move the mouse, and the page will show you a photo of someone pointing at wherever your pointer is.

Kyle took it apart some more and even made a realtime version in C++ and openFrameworks. Here’s a video of it in action.

The project’s creators StudioMoniker actually made a real-time version themselves, but this time the pointer shows camera flashes in reflections.

Paul Irish further tears down this project on this rather interesting video.
