Don’t you think that there are more than enough Kinect hacks around already after it was opened up to the masses? Well, just before you get turned off by Kinect hacks for good, why not check this one out. UC-Davis researchers managed to take a couple of Kinects and conjure a 3D video chat which is somewhat out of this world. The project as seen in the video was created by Oliver Kreylos, where two Kinect cameras were used to capture someone’s image, followed by streaming the 3D image over the Internet. This would end up as a 3D image on your screen whenever you commence a video chat, albeit being slightly choppy due to the amount of data that needs to be streamed over. To make matters all the more interesting, a Wiimote will control the program and navigate the virtual space. What are some of the best Kinect hacks that you’ve seen to date?
