Interactive Puppet Prototype with Xbox Kinect hack (video)

Interactive Puppet Prototype with Xbox Kinect hack (video)… Theo writes –

A quick installation prototype Emily and I hooked up with the libfreenect Kinect drivers and ofxKinect. The system is doing skeleton tracking on the arm and determining where the shoulder, elbow, and wrist is, using it to control the movement and posture of the giant funky bird! Speed project – made in a day using openFrameworks and libFreenect.

This is better than any Xbox game.

    That is the REAL reason Microsoft is so terrified of open drivers.
