Hacked Kinect Art Program Totally Rules Despite Current Uselessness

Ty Dunitz November 15 Design

Because you’re awesome, have this quick video of Mehmet Akten playing with his prototype for a 3D art program for use with the newly-hacked Kinect.

‘Memo’ is short and sweet about it.

The XBox Kinect is connected to my Macbook Pro, and I wrote a little demo to analyse the depth map for gestural 3D interaction. One hand to draw in 3D, two hands to rotate the view. Very rough, early prototype.

Very well. But know this, Mr. Akten. You like to touch people? Well, we like to watch – and we’re going to be watching you very closely as this radness develops.

You might say it… kineckts ass? No, that’s a really terrible pun, never mind.
