More evidence to the emerging breakthrough for the Kinect! The Kinect Head Pose Estimation 2 is a realtime display of how the Kinect is now able to detect the head movements of user. This video by Gabriele Fanelli displays this concept and program at work and how head pose estimation opens a new door to future Kinect hacks. In the video, a user is seen moving her head and tilting it at different directions. As a result, the laptop display of the Kinect’s captured movements display head movements and a pointer to properly display the direction of the head. The image and data is captured in realtime, making this program a critical component for hackers who want to include head detection to their Kinect hacks portfolio!
