A student in the UK by the name of Ro Ramtohul needed to help increase familiarity with other cultures using a bit of technology for a school project. His whole vision revolves around how he can use TV as an incentive to learn different cultures using a kinect attached to his TV and a Windows Phone.
The project dubbed “Reculture” uses a Windows Phone for various things like:
- To notify the user what the culture of the day is.
- To inform the user what the culture’s gestures are.
- To enable the user to learn more about the different cultures.
- To enable the user to compare different cultures’ gestures.
