The Walk, Leap, Jump exhibit is part performance (a stage to capture silly walks and dances as looping digital animations) and part scientific data collection. Children run, walk, skip and jump about in front of a screen. The camera and computer system captures their movement and analyzes their stride, height and speed. The computer can calculate and display miles per hour, amount of energy used, calories burned and compare data to other visitors. It also displays cumulative animations of previous visitors moving and dancing together on screens overhead.
