MineCraft + Kinect

MineCraft + Kinect

The goal of this hack is to import the data from the Xbox Kinect, process it, and create various effects in the Minecraft universe. The project is currently in its third phase. The first phase aimed to take a snapshot from a Kinect and transform it into a Minecraft save file. The depth and color information was used to approximate the position and types of blocks to best represent the 3D point cloud in MineCraft. The second phase aimed to animate the data captured by the Kinect at 30FPS by means of stop-motion animation.
