The old brick game gets another Kinect revamp as Tetris, with the help of the depth camera device and WiiMote. Youtube user keysosaurus shared this video on how the tetris can be played with the video display as the background, the Kinect as the head and hand tracking device and the WiiMote as the Tetris piece rotator. In the video, the user is able to play the Tetris using the Kinect and the WiiMote. The hand movements are used to position the the falling bricks while the WiiMote is primarily used for the rotation of the bricks. We believe that the use of the WiiMote is present primarily because of the fact that there has not been any Kinect development that clearly tracks the rotation of the hands with the palm facing down. Will members of the community take this challenge? Either way, the Kinect Tetris 3d looks great and we recommend users to take a look at this program.
The Kinect Tetris 3d was made using C# using XNA, OpenNI and Managed Library for Nintendo’s Wiimote.
