I really want to make something like this so I thought I'd share.
We've all met people like this. I meet meet people like this on a daily basis due to the nature of my work and I think they should all be banned from the Internet for being a waste of oxygen. Anyone who I work with will get the reference to the title.
I would love to be able to draw like this. This must have taken the guys hours, and it is clearly a masterpiece!
This hacker is using a blender model and Kinect to replicate his movements in real-time. Quite impressive how accurate it is.
Not really much to say about this one apart from how clearly awesome this thing could be. I'd loved to be able to compose music without ever playing a note on a keyboard or twanging my guitar. It also brings memories of when I used to use FLStudio (Fruityloops back then) quite a lot to make insane dance music. Keep the hacks coming, and also an adapter so I can start making my own! My about that in my next post.
As many of you may know, Xbox Kinect has been hacked many times for various different reasons on the PC. Now the millions of gamers can play their favourite Wow experiences using body gestures rather than a keyboard. This enhanced use of Kinect on one of the world's most popular online computer games demonstrates exactly how powerful the future of gaming is going to be. Maybe when the "official" PC drivers are released (as Microsoft have hinted at the possibility of this), more top gaming companies will embrace this new way of controlling games. I am buying my own Kinect in the morning and can't wait to start hacking away at different projects for myself and others.
Out of all the random things Google have come up with to demonstrate their products, this has to be the most fun I've seen. While we're all working hard at the office, they're playing with paint, potato and explosives!? Who wants to join me in applying for Google? Yea, I thought so!
