The latest Microsoft Kinect hack involves a Japanese superhero, laser eyebeams, and a peek at how awesome becoming a virtual superhuman can be.
Microsoft's Kinect controller is rapidly becoming a hacker's favorite, but I'm pretty sure this is the first humanoid robot which uses a Kinect to follow every move you make.
Microsoft's body sensing game system is pretty cool, but it took the hacking community to unleash Kinect's full potential. The software behind Kinect's tricks was broken open just over a month ago, and here are our five favorite hacks so far.
Is it possible we will be seeing even better Kinect games and more importantly more comprehensive hacks in the future? A reports suggests that Microsoft is working on a new firmware update that could quadruple Kinect's accuracy.
Independent programmers and developers are doing some wonderful things with Microsoft's Kinect camera. Guess, who else is getting in on the action? Adult-game developers.
There have been plenty of Kinect hacks since Microsofts motion-detecting Xbox add-on was released, but this may be the most impressive: an autonomous flying machine.
You probably already know this, but Super Mario Bros. turned 25 this year. What better way to commemorate the anniversary than, with a Kinect hack that uses your entire body to squash Goombas and defeat Bowser to save Princess Peach?
Kinect has been hacked, allowing DIY modders to play around with it and use it for their own devices. One of the first projects to appear since it was hacked is this, an amazing update to old-school shadow puppets.
The floodgates for Kinect hacks have officially opened. We already saw one guy bring Minority Report-style photo manipulation using a Kinect sensor. Now we have another dude who has created a 3D holographic video with the same tech.
After eight years of geeking over Minority Report's gesture-based manipulation interface, we're really pumped that it isn't all just movie magic anymore. It was only a matter of time before this would happen. Hackers are a crafty bunch after all.
