Bored with Kinect?

The latest ‘gadget’ on the market is the Kinect add on for the Microsoft Xbox. It is actually pretty cool technology as this video shows:

It is actually thousands of little beams of light that record your every location and then translate that back to the XBox. So you can jump around the room and interact directly with the game.

 

But what happens, inevitably, a few days after Christmas when you’ve become a bit bored with it? Well if you are a geek then you hack the Kinect and make it do something like this:

(if the embedded video doesn’t show click this link - http://vimeo.com/17095170 and don’t worry it is ‘work friendly’).

 

Who says the Kinect was only for games?
