Kinect used to create impressive physics demo

If there’s one thing the Kinect is good for – it’s to create impressive videos of humans interacting with digital objects. The folks over at IDEO Labs recently got their hands on a Kinect and coded up an impressive demo in a short span of 2-3 hours to show what the Kinect is capable of. Looking more like some arthouse/indie/experimental animation, they outlined the visible shape of the person in front of the camera. Then they managed to get the Kinect to detect the shape of a person and used it to interact with falling cubes on the screen. Hopefully some folks will take the idea and push it even further to create animated shorts using the power of the Kinect. Hit the break to watch the video:
