Kinect hack plus broomstick puts working lightsaber in your hands

While tech pundits are crowing about the decline of Microsoft, the fact is that the company's new Kinect game controller has actually inspired gamers to create innovations on top of their platform like the Kinect Lightsaber.

Put together by a person nicknamed Yankeyan, the construct allows you to take something as simple as a wooden stick and watch as it is transformed into a real-time lightsaber on your television screen (Yankeyan even added lightsaber movement sound effects). You can check out the Kinect Lightsaber in action in the video below.
