In case you didn’t already know, the Kinect can be used as more than just a gaming device – the possibilities of what it can be used for is near limitless. Well, the folks over at the Technical University of Munich have decided to use it for educational purposes in a project called “mirracle”. Using the Kinect as some sort of “magic mirror”, they created an augmented reality app that lets people see what the insides of their bodies look like – as opposed to just seeing a reflection of themselves in the Kinect “mirror”. A pretty cool idea that could help the curious people who want to know what makes their body tick. Check out the video demonstration above.
