Splashbox Kinect Make up kit

The Fashion Digital Studio used Microsoft’s Kinect to create a virtual make up kit for celebrated make up artist Alex Box. The gesture based real time painting application is used as the finale to her MAC Masterclasses in London, NY, LA and Miami. Applying colour with a sweep of the hand to a 3D scan of the models face.

Working on becoming a VJ/DJ using the kinect


Working on scratching and drumming in mid air with the kinect as my turntable on my Mac with ableton live. More to follow

Leap userinterface with Flickr, Minority Report User Interface is here (well sort of :-)

I recently gave a presentation about Natural User Interface and dived again in my old (?) leapmotion.

It can do minority style user interface within a webapp:

3d scan of my room using the kinect

I love all the stuff one can do with the Microsoft Kinect. Take for example, this scan of my bay window

(looks like a snow bawl due to the white parts outside)

And without color:

The kinect can be used for much more then just scanning. Scanning one's girlfriend for example :-)

The analog loophole, using a lego mindstorm and Mac to bypass the DRM on a Kindle

I love the idea of using the analog loophole to bypass copyprotection / DRM. For example filming in the movie in the cinema (usually very bad quality) or...

From allthingsd:

Using Lego’s Mindstorms — a basic robotics kit popular with hobbyists — plus a Kindle and a Mac, he has assembled a way to photograph what’s on the screen, and then submit it to a cloud-based text-recognition service.

To bad I dont have a kindle. Nor really the need to copy a work like this. But still, once the WorlWide cyber police controls us all; we can stull use the analog loophole to get back at them :-)
