Nice round up of Kinect hacks, art and creativity!

There have been a number of exciting developments in the last few days related to XBox Kinect. For those that may not be aware of what it is, it’s a brand new interface to their Microsoft XBox games console. Kinect brings games without using a controller. By using projected infra-red light, the device is able to map the environment and via xbox built in software recognise gestures of any kind…

Amazing work by the communities and clearly an example of the power of opensource. Daniel Shiffman is now working on the port for Processing and undoubtedly many more are playing with what’s already been created…
