Kinect hack turns you into a laser-enabled Japanese superhero

The latest Microsoft Kinect hack involves a Japanese superhero, laser eyebeams, and a peek at how awesome becoming a virtual superhuman can be.

The Kinect hack was accomplished by Japanese YouTube user hogehoge335. In addition to outfitting you to look like Japan's classic hero Ultra Seven, the hack also lets you deliver the character's signature "Eye Beam," "Wide Shot," and "Eye Slugger" boomerang-style weapon. The tinkerer promises to release the code to the public soon, but in the meantime you can see video of the Kinect superhero action below.
