Now, hackers create a more robust control for virtual reality with this latest experimentation! The Kinect Body Gestures for Virtual Reality Platform aims to make virtual life more comfortable by offering more gesture-friendly controls to the user. This video by Alexis Paljic displays how, through simple controls and the Kinect, virtual reality can be more accommodating. In the video, the user is able to manipulate objects through a series of gestures. There are 2 approaches to this hack: the Body Touch and Clock Type Selection. These 3 methods allow the user to either scale, move or rotate the object at hand. There are more proposed actions on the way! The ability to manipulate objects in VR opens a window to a new virtual experience either in life simulations or editing!
