Proof of concept of tracking and rendering a lightsaber in real time using a Kinect hooked up to a PC. Imagine the possibilities. Best viewed in fullscreen 480p. I track a wooden stick and I overlay the light glow on the computer. Drivers using OpenKinect, image processing, tracking, and rendering using OpenCV. Audio recorded and processed using Audacity and played using libao.
That's just badass

Yep,....it's only the start of what they'll do with this thing too.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
wow look at the lag from when the bat crosses his face in the mirror and when it crosses his face on the screen. I hope its not like that on the 360 or that would suck big time...
On another note cool idea

Gotta admit... that's a pretty cool hack.
On the other hand, it seems like pretty much everyone of these Kinect hacks could be done with two standard webcams. I've had two webcams connected to my Linux machine for years, so there's not really anything new here.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Finally a practical application fro the Kinect :P
Now we are going to have to suffer new versions of the Star Wars kid!
