Turn into the next human torch as this Kinect special effect gives precisely that! The Kinect Fire Man Effect engulfs users in a virtual flame for a very hot outcome! This video by  showcases the bizarre effects that figure tracking of the Kinect can do. In the video, the general outline of the user’s body is captured by the Kinect. The computer then adds the fire effect to the user’s body and a high-powered GPU enables the smooth flame to be seen and be placed in real time. The outcome is that the user can become like the famed Fantastic Four character, the human torch! This also brings to life the possibility of many more special effects becoming accessible to various graphics specialists and filmmakers.
