The concept of a terra formation with the Kinect is charming the world! The Kinect EDEN is an interactive Ecosystem Simulation that let’s users create virtual lands and water bodies! This video by Patricio Gonzalez Vivo showcases the latest development to this depth sensing creation and the different beauties you can create with it. In the video, the Kinet is positioned at the top of a platform with sand. The program then detects the height of the sand mass and projects colored lands based on how high the earth is. For those with too much depth, a projected water is created. The user then can commence creating various islands! Playing God might not be so bad and far off with the Kinect!
