Kinect is showing the potential to manipulate almost everything… down to the very letter. A Kinect program created by Vimeo user voodoofx actually enables users to manipulate fonts. This intriguing yet simple Kinect program is a nice hack to see. The Kinect’s motion capture capablility is the base feature used in this text manipulation program. Users use their movements in order to control the structure of the font selected. The output is a spectacular manipulated letter bones image that bears a personalized touch by the user. We’re raving to see more of these kinds of Kinect hack contributions after all, since the Kinect can manipulate almost anything digital, why not have digital letters bend and twist based on your movement?
