Hacked Kinect coming up with new ideas

Written by Nick Farell


Great fun in the bedroom
Developers are using Microsoft's Kinect motion-controlled game accessory to spice up their sex life. [What sex life? sub.ed.]

The Kinect which uses a 3D camera and motion recognition software to enhance game play on its Xbox 360 consoles with gesture-sensing controls was hacked pretty soon after it went on sale. Since then videos of home-brewed applications have appeared on Vimeo and YouTube and its credentials as an adult gaming platform are fast becoming obvious.

An application created specifically to track nipples has added fuel to the discussion with many seeing Kinect as becoming the sex toy of the future. Apparently if you can do nipples, there are other appendages which should be able to be tracked too.

Other things that have been developed include a holographic-type 3D image generated by two Kinect devices working together. Microsoft claims it is excited by experimental applications like his, but it has not liked the word hack applied to them. Redmond said that it was comfortable with hobbyists taking advantage of that raw data to explore the exciting possibilities of Kinect for Xbox 360 for themselves.

Here is the list of hacks found by the Sydney Morning Herald:

1. Kinect Titty Tracker
Places lingerie on a man's chest area.

2. 3D box
This merges video streams from two Kinect cameras into a realistic 3D reconstruction of a box.

3.Lightsabre
Turns a broomstick into a light sabre

4. Body controlled Mario
Demonstrates full body control application of Nintendo's Mario.

5. Rubber sheet
Visual app that creates effect of a rubber sheet being waved around in space by distorting Kinect depth information.

6. Fat Cat
Realtime body distortion of a man and his cat using Cinder and a Kinect sensor.

7. Bird puppet
Kinect Skeleton tracking technology helps to creates the movement and posture of a giant bird projected onto a wall.
