Video DJing’ with the hacked Kinect on NYE in SF

 Wp Wp-Uploads 2010 12 Gray Nye2

Our favorite digital artist Robert Hodgin is doing interactive digital visualizations for a NYE party in SF – awesome!

In the past month, hackers have exploited the technology of Microsoft’s Kinect 360 for XBox to transform the physical form into the digital realm, to astonishing artistic effect. At Gray Area’s Binary New Year’s Eve: 010111 Gray Area Members will be dancing their way into interactive digital visualizations, projected on walls of the Gray Area. The Kinect visuals in our banner are the work of the infamous Robert Hodgin (Flight404).The kinect camera sensor will be installed above the audience and projections will display collective movement. When you toss in some bangin’ LIVE performances by Moniker, Qzen, and Nikola Baytala, an LED balloon drop, complimentary champagne toast, an open bar until 11pm, then you’ve got a pretty exciting New Year’s Eve bash.

This sounds like the coolest NYE party!
