Just last night we almost bought a Kinect, the new motion sensor peripheral for Xbox 360. We had it in our hands; Lindsay was chomping at the bit to play some Dance Central.
But (being the nerd I am) I've followed all the hands-on impressions and coverage since it was launched and I don't think we have the proper space or lighting to make it work right. Although I wish I did.
As cool as Dance Central is, what hackers and modders have been doing with the hardware even cooler.
For instance, Mollinex created this video for their song,Catalina using the data pulled from Kinect's 3-D depth-sensing camera.
I might try to round up a lot of cool kinect hacks for a future post. There's a lot of cool stuff happening around that tech.
