Since the kinect for the xbox 360 was released, i have always thought of it as a gimik, but after talking to Georg i have found that it can be used in a vast variety of ways, and is a viable tool for the work we are doing as it allows for uses from motion tracking to 3d scanning.
I hope to get my little brothers kinect in the next few weeks as the games for it our truely awefull.
Here are some cool things i have found incorporating it.<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/18500457″>Kinect – 3D body tracking with physics</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/user3145672″>Tharsis-Software</a> on <a href=”http://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.</p>
This is awesome, the way the physics are worked out form the motion tracking is amazing.<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/18429549″>Kinect + XNA</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/arbuzz”>ARBUZZ</a> on <a href=”http://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.</p>
Although the motion tracking is a bit glitchy, i still think that it is pretty cool and it will be interesting how they use and develop this in the future.
