Using the Kinect as a security gesture 3D game device

An oldie, from DevCon20, Kinectasploit v2

Using a gesture based kinect interface to start two dozen security tools.

Source code at github:

Smart trashcan

A geek that cant throw, a 3D printer, some code, some batteries, a kinect and a trashcan.. Make a great combination, watch this:

A great video with Kinect , ni-mate and blender

A great arty video using Kinect and raytracing

Kinect Project /// I Dieci from Alkanoids on Vimeo.

It is using the opensource Kinect drivers I have been using, ni-mate (a Kinect to 3d rending engine) and the engine blender.

Kinect Dance with curtain

Too bad there is not much information online about how they build this... Cool technology though, lame dancing :-)
