Since we know that Google Maps can be controlled with the Kinect, the question then is, what comes next? Well, the Kinect community gladly gave its answer by providing a motion-based city navigator with the help of Kinect. Virtual representations of city buildings, streets and landmarks can be accessed for directions and information just by using your hand and body. The Kinect offers this Natural User Interface to make navigation, direction finding and information gathering easy, convenient and interesting.
In this video by Vimeo User bug, the Rennes 3d City Navigator is being used to scan the general outline of the city. This technology can really come in handy by incorporating it to serve as maps for tourists, blueprints for security agencies or outlines for real estate developers.
