As if being able to display Kinect’s captured images on OS X wasn’t enough, the solid community behind Kinect’s incredible hacks managed to manipulate the data recorded by Kinect and output everything on OS X using cool futuristic cubes (a system called Box Cloud). These neon cubes may vary in size according to the distance of the subject from the camera — it’s overall a pretty cool thing to look at.
But modders and hackers took the whole concept a step further and allowed iPad users to control “planes of interest” using their multitouch tablet. With the iPad you can change the colors visualized on screen, adjust zoom by tilting the device. Somehow, it all comes together in the video below.
It’s only hacking, but we like it. [via Engadget]
