Very impressive... Kinect hacks

Post by #1thelark » Tue Nov 16, 2010 11:02 pm

Kinect is a new "3d-controller" for XBOX that came out a few days ago...Imho it's really impressive what hackers achieved already:

3D Video Capture with Kinect

Thanks to Augmented Reality you could also do a B2B set with someone from far away for example ;-) :

This will open up many possibilities, for realising your own controlling interface, interacting with the crowd, etc...

Here are some more hacks, nothing related to music yet, but I'm sure there will be some kind of midi/osc-patch soon :-): http://www.youtube.com/user/KinectHacks

Even though I'm not a gamer I'm kind of interested in this, hacks aside.

developed by the IDF.

So when you're dancing a jig before it like a paunched, servile baboon just imagine the sound of orphaned children choking on charred rubble.

"awesome!"

It's been on the irish/english news broadcasts. Interesting coverage in as much as they don't seem to clarify if it's military affiliations are a point of promotion or condemnation. I suppose their ambiguity plays into the hands of both audiences...

"military tech in home entertainment = kool"
"military tech in home entertainment = awful"

google it your own damn self :wink:

I think when it comes to potential ban-worthy behavior he realizes this is a triathlon and not a sprint with each leg of the race needing a different tactic.

Oddly the more hacks I see the less interested I am. Seems like a bunch of neat-o gimmicky shit I personally would have very little use for.

Then there's the videos of people playing some games with very little movement and yet the game plays on.
