The theater cannot pass up this opportunity to produce precision and quality position tracking technology for stage lights. Youtube user ITVMaudlin released this video of how the Kinect is able to track performers and then command spotlights to follow them. This development is another contribution from the community who are more than willing to spend time and effort in improving artistic performances. In this video, the user is tracked by the Kinect and the spotlight overhead follows the user. The program its might still be rough as stated by the developer, but we have no doubts that this Kinect Auto Spotlight have given artists and stage engineers a basis for a lot of innovative and creative developments. Since performing arts rely on both precise technical performances, it is without question that the Kinect has a lot to give to the theater industry.
