Latest Kinect Hack Creates All-Seeing 'Eye of Sauron'

The latest snarky Kinect hack is this one, by The Technology Studio. The company took a Kinect unit and the Puffersphere, a spherical display by Pufferfish. Basically, they were able to create the Eye of Sauron, from Lord of the Rings.

The eye even follows you around the room as you move. Considering that Sauron was supposed to be all-seeing, it's a cool adaptation. Watch it below.

That is ba, I wonder how it does when there are multiple people moving around the room. Does it turn into the eye from big trouble in little china?

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,

Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,

Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,

One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne

In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,

One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them

In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

 

EDIT: I was beaten kinda

Great 'hack'! I love the level of depth that some of the hackers are doing with the Kinect now a days. I mean just take a look at all the new ones that are coming out on a daily basis here .

I think that the mainstream will begin to really take in the Kinect once the SDK comes out in the next couple of months. In fact I really think thats when the Kinect 'hacks' will really hit the mainstream with the commercial applications of it.
