As always, digging everything Kinect hacking related.
My research using the Point cloud generated by kinect as a reference to animating.
Via an old friend, the tip to browse to makeymakey.com, it turns any object into a key. And as you know, everything that combines the real world with the virtual world, can get my attention.

And yes, it is an old kickstarter project.

I love everything that connects the real world with the virtual world. And the kinect (or generic, gestures) are a great way to make this connection.

Little Boxes is a music box concept for iPad. It consists of a tangible part composed of three separate music boxes that interact with an iPad and an application. When placing one of the boxes on the iPad, it recognizes it and activates. The idea is that each box contains its own universe revealed by the action of the crank with an animation and melody proper to each. The aim is to give a new dimension to the music box, and transcribe visual sensations that don't exist in a standard music box. This work reflects my desire to play with the physical and digital elements by making them interact. It allowed me to embrace different areas, and confront myself with creative and technical challenges. The result is the creation of a world through the music box, where everyone can enter and interact with it. The tracks used for this project are courtesy of the french artist Colleen / Album "Colleen et les boîtes à musique" (http://bit.ly/NfdsLk).
As a kid, I always wanted to have a racetrack. With loopings. As a dad, I stil do. But since I know that this toy will be hot for a day or two, and will be in the box the rest of the year, I am not too keen on buying it. For me.. Or the kids.
Then I saw this awesome product. One is no longer bound on the tracks the maker of the toy designed, but you can let the cars go from the stairs, make loopings and have a great design; yuor design
Here is a video showing of some of the posibilities of the Bluetrack product:
