Exciting things in other people’s bedrooms
If you want to see what the rest of the world will be playing with in a few years, there’s no better place to look than a techie’s bedroom. I must admit that I had been pretty skeptical about the Microsoft Kinect technology because, well, it’s from Microsoft. But I love it that the techies saw the potential in it right away and set themselves to hacking it as soon as it was released. Microsoft stupidly tried to stop them (rather than embracing their genius) and I’m delighted to see the results of the hackers’ labours.
I discovered this one thanks to the brilliant Knotty (¿noʎ әɹɐ ʍoႡ ‘әpnp ʎәႡ). The video you see here is all through the Kinect system. You’ll see the reasoning for the strange black outlines about half way through. Absolutely amazing.
