As you might know, I like integrating stuff. Integrating analog and digital. Augmented Reality. Kinect and my computers. And here are dozens of oppertunities there. see for example the posting at dadhoc.omc
I recently bought an Xbox game for my kids, Lego batman 2. They LOVE it. Really LOVE it. Fine. It is just that the game has some serioud flaws. Flaws that are widly documented on the net. And that this hurts imho the brads Lego and WB Games. caus it is not like I am the only one suffering from this problem: as 2.5 M results show.
The maker knows about that the game freezes during many cut scenes, though says it happens "occascially".
See this message
It lists a number of other "solutions". Dont bother. Just use the "no cutscene. Despite it's name you still see the movies, but can skim them, do so in level in 9 and 12:-(
A bit out of my league, but still. Cool to see the use of the Kinect this way.
One of the reasons I bought an XBOX and not a PS3 was the Kinect. "gestures are the new touch" and all that jazz. And it when comes to a cheap household device that can do wonders in Augmented Reality, the Kinect is -no pun intended- a Game Changer.
For example, coverflow is one of the first things one imagines when one talks about gestures, ever since iOS 3 or so it was on the wanted list. And windshield Augmented Reality is what everyone comes up with. Both are however not the best candidates. In the coming weeks, I'll give some examples of real use of the Kinect beyond those two.
My favourite and still working on it myself? Be a DJ, never miss a beat, be the beat. Take a look at this video:
I am still in the proces of getting all this to work on my Macs but will post before I am done some more Kinectar implementations.
As you might know, I am hacking my Kinect for fun and profit. So far lost of fun, no profit. :-) But still.
This hack looks rather cool, use your Kinect to send a picture to your android Watch...
