Vote This Hack:
Posted on 04/23/2011
The Kinect community has used the depth camera device in order to provide a different kind of entertainment which invites physical interactivity. The most recent of these fun Kinect hacks is the Kinect Interactive Floor. Martinha Green recently shared with us this latest project which invites users to step on designated parts of the floor to produce music while displaying their actions on-screen. The Kinect’s body tracking then prompts the program to display the user’s images on a wide screen. The result is an interactive program that merges movement, music and visuals together. In this video, lighted dots are the designated points where the user can step and produce music. The display in the widescreen changes based on the position of the users to the Kinect and also based on the music played and dots stepped.
