Fly Around London Like a Pigeon

The video above shows the Pigeon Simulator in action. It was created by George Mackerron, a UCL researcher, for the CASA Smart Cities Conference.

Basically the simulator allows you to fly or flap around London as a Pigeon would, using a Microsoft Kinect to capture your moves. It's not all fun and games though, as you can discover information about air pollution levels, height of the Thames and general weather information.
