We’ve seen the Kinect Eye hack that had a big eye-ball looking at passers-by. Adding a fantasy-fiction feel to the Puffersphere, this Kinect program has the all-seeing Eye of Sauron detecting any person who comes across the Kinect’s vision. As previously stated, the Puffersphere displays images assigned by the user. Since the Puffersphere is spherical in form, adding a retina can make it look like a huge eye. Adding the fiery dark Eye of Sauron gives LOTR fans a great item to have with the Kinect. If the image were to be animated and an audio playing “I see you” is added, we can definitely feel the dark lord’s presence even in this real world.
This video by Youtube User, EsporteJornal shows the Eye of Sauron, ever vigilant to the whereabouts of the Ring of Power. The Kinect detect’s incoming object’s and therefore displays the Eye of Sauron which in turn, follows the user’s position.
