Never run out of dance partners! The Kinect Boogie Motion Capture Avatar Dance is a simple showcase of the Kinect’s ability to detect the motions of a human user. This video by Nigel Ward shows how the virtual avatar can imitate actions made by the user through the Kinect. In the video, the user dances and the avatar follows. The Kinect’s motion capture capability makes all of these possible. Though this hack is simple in nature, the evidence is clearly shown that the Kinect is a great device for motion capture. No longer is this feature expensive and out of our reaches. The Kinect is here, the motion capture is here and we prepare for a world of wonderful innovations!
