Microsoft Kinect Hack Shows Great Potential – Video Within

Microsoft is finally selling Kinect in Singapore. I saw so much buzz over it. Actually, I am more interested on those hacks with the Kinect. I can imagine great potential in them (other than playing games). Watch the video after the break.

The most interesting one is this puppet that is projected on the wall. It uses the Kinect to define the movement. Watch this video.

Next hack shows the great potential of the 3D camera. It can (almost) view the room in 3D although it is static in the room. And another video shows that it can actually do accurate measurement of real life things using the 3D camera.
