The Kinect is taking the world by storm, and it seems not only as a gaming and media peripheral. Developer Seeper transformed the Karlstor gate in Munich into a massive interactive experience that even attracted Dutch celebrity Sylvie van der Vaart.
Raphael is one lucky boy.
@Disagree's Raphael Van der vaart is that gorgeous womens husband.
Technology keeps amazing me!!
You mean technology in general, right? This was just a Kinect marketing event. The Kinect wasn't used for anything here.
all the stuff happening on the walls was recorded? Wow that the guys did such a good job anticipating what a real person would do and just pre program that. +bub to you for knowing so much.
When did they make a 40ft wide Kinect? "This technology is kind of a representation of the type of interaction you can get with Kinect" -2:34 of the video Since that is a direct quote from the lead member of the team that set up the event, I will take it as gospel. It isn't Kinect. It's technology that his team put together to give people a general idea of kicking balls with Kinect. No where in my previous comment did I say anything was pre-recorded. So don't lie about what I said when it's clearly stated. Minus bub to you for not knowing so much.
Starting to sound, ah whats the word? Foolish! That should do it. He is obviously using Kinect with a simple projector. Do I have to explain what a projector is too?
The video was clear as day. I thought Kinect only support 2 players max, but thanks to a projector it can support a whole crowd of people at the street? Secondly, isn't the Kinect SUPPOSED to be in front of the person as opposed to being behind them? -End statement
Really, dude? He's obviously using Kinect with a projector? A: Why didn't he say that? I gave his quote and time of quote in the video. He didn't say anything about using Kinect. B: What would a projector, which projects images, have to do with the Kinect, which is a camera and not an image, being used by hundreds of people at the same time? Explain those, darthv72 and Bigpappy. I would LOVE to hear the new explaination.
Can't wait to see what comes out within next few years :)
Wow MS certainly knows how to launch a product. Kinect's potential is incredible.
That was impressive.
dont mess with MS marketing .. there was a big event too in manchester england.. and not forgetting london.
That was pretty sweet :3! Now...where are the games :D?
ummm it has nothing to do with kinect some guy was paid to setup an interactive art installation, its not using kinect. "inspired by" lol
Kinect like thingy. Do you think the people are really using their shadows to move the balls? Or is he using that Eyetoy that can do everything kinect can do? What the heck is wrong with you people?! By the way: The video is called "Kinect interactive art" and has jump in in the graphics. Those bubbles are also part of Kinect intro graphics on the 360. You can see a lot better if you pluck you head out of that dark, smelly area.
What i find funny is you guys are going omg so much hate for thisyet i have no seen hating in the comment section most of you are just trying to start something. Btw not game related cause its not using kinect. So much for the kinect circel jerking.
You are correct in that there has been no Kinect hate so far on this thread. I find that surprising.
"this technology is kind of a representation of the type of interation you can get with Kinect" it is therefore not using Kinect to do this. Nice marketing stunt though. Edit, they also did the same interaction stuff for a Nokia Ovi maps promotion.
So much positive buzz on this so far...it's really snowballing into the holiday season pretty nicely for Microsoft. I'm glad I got mine, because they'll be hard to find before long. At least until after the holidays.
I agree that this art installation was rather creative. It's most interesting for the other possible uses of Kinect's technology, other than gaming.
They've done this exact thing at Disney's California Adventure for years..
It's impressiv the way it's set up but you could have done that with the Playstation 2 and the Eyetoy.
The amount of money that must have gone into Kinect through development, production and marketing boggles my mind.
