The throne of our brain has entered the list of detectable body parts by the Kinect! The Kinect Head Tracking is proof that even the head of the user can now be used to provide interactive commands to the computers and machines! This video by Sezer Karaoglu displays the Kinect Head Tracking at work. In the video, a circular gauge at the screen is seen, showing the head alignment of the user. As the user tilts his head, the bar shows the movement of the user’s head and the direction. We can see from this hack that the Kinect is now able to read the user’s head movement. With this additional way to control Kinect, we can see virtual reality simulations change their POVs just by tilting the head!
