Artist makes beautiful light with Microsoft’s Kinect

For months, we’ve known that Microsoft’s Kinect could help make video games fun. But who knew that it projects such beautiful light?

Until San Francisco Bay Area artist Audrey Penven and some friends started taking pictures of themselves playing Kinect games, no one. But when Penven looked at the images, she realized she was on to something special.

In normal light, you can’t even see the light put out by the Kinect, Microsoft’s new motion control system for the Xbox 360. But with the help of a roommate’s camera, which is modified to shoot infrared, Penven discovered scenes at once ghostly and straight from the cover of a Neal Stephenson novel.
