Virtual controllers are always cool. They let you do stuff without having to worry about the hassle of of physical-based interfaces. And they’re always interesting to work with.

Today’s featured hack is another great example of Kinect-powered virtual controllers. This oen though is geared for use with Google TV. Here’s a description of the hack from the developer.

“I’ve written a program that allows you to use a Kinect sensor to control the pointer on a Google TV device. The Kinect sensor is used like the touch control of a Google TV remote control.

“The program is based on the simple OpenNI wrapper for Processing. The program also uses the Anymote-for-Java library”

For those interested in learning more about the hack, the code is open-source and can be accessed via the handy-dandy link below.
