The Kinect can now be used to play another kind of musical instrument and this time, music can be created via Virtual Strings. Code authors Alexander Chen, Aidan Feldman and Tyler Williams named this project “Stringer” and uses the Kinect to detect user’s hand movements in order to play the displayed strings as they make contact. This video release shows how a user can play the virtual strings by just moving their arms or the desired body part.
The project was in Music Hackday exhibit in New York City. You can download the code here or go to the official Stringer website for more information about this great project.
