Little toys are starting to enjoy the great benefits the Kinect is able to give. Youtube user jwagner29a recently uploaded this video of using the Kinect and his hand movements to control a USB Toy Rocket Launcher. Hand gestures control the rotation of the Rocket Launcher and the other hand, when gestured downward, fire the toy rockets. The USB rocket launcher also appears to have a webcam that enabled the documenting of this Kinect program. It is such an interesting thing to see the Kinect community experimenting the device on various items. Since a lot of computer-related electronics can be connected to the USB, we’ll probably see Kinect-controlled USB fans, toys and figures in the future. Expect to see them here at Kinecthacks.com
