Real-time Lightsaber with Kinect


When Microsoft released their Xbox 360 motion sensing camera Kinect a couple of weeks ago, it didn’t take long for the thing to be hacked and custom PC (and even Mac) drivers to come out. Thanks to those early tinkerers, people can now plug their Kinect into their PC to play around with all sorts of homebrew apps, with more coming out every day. This latest one is probably the coolest yet with a guy who managed to create a real-time Lightsaber on his monitor by using Kinect. Check out the video.
