Chris O'Shea recently showed his development pizazz by utilizing the Kinect camera and system to make an Air Guitar Prototype. Rock On!
Awesome! Loving the development!
Haha that's awesome! 10x better than messing around with RockBand or GuitarHero!
RB and GH have what's called, split second precision. It is what makes the game playable and difficult.
@D4RkNIKON I was saying that the gameplay would be rather innovative and more fun this way. *facepalm*
HAHAHA! This is like Air Sex. Seriously, look it up.
I am loving it. Only out a month. Primesense just released an update to improve Kinect's tracking. They did it to help the hackers get better and quicker results.
These hacks and custom builds will eventually capture someones eye to spend cash to create a game. As potentially bad as everyone says kinect is, these hacks are clearly going to help kinect do some more damage to the Wii. (some time in the near future)
What's innovative about Air Guitar? If anything, all that will do is make the games near unplayable, you NEED!!! a physical object in your hand for some things and I think playing guitar is one of those things. That's only my opinion though, I couldn't play something like guitar hero without the physical object in my hand.
That's amazing lol
haha it will only get better... are these dudes just like random people and not Kinect Developers.?
Not random, but not Kinect developers, per se either. MIT students (who focus on video game development mostly) and guys who do this sort of thing for a living ( http://www.chrisoshea.org/ ). Extremely interesting to see what people are doing with this. I'm not going to put my usual response here since it will just be drowned out by fans, but I will say let's wait to see what this results in the long run.
showing restraint is good when it comes to things like this. We both know the routine and others wont get it. I do like to take the optimistic approach in thinking that things like this will get better. Long run or short jog....they will.
Wow I was just saying that last week sitting at gamestop while playing guitar hero and arguing about fighting games, same time I brought gt5 I can prove it, they stole my idea
These "hacks" are amazing. One can only image what talented Developers with the full access to the dev kits for Kinect can do... Enough with the wii like titles....lets get some imagination going and take a cue from some of these people who have been doing some amazing "hacks"
hopeflly Developers are watching
EXACTLY. Let's see some third party developers continue to make a so-so product, stellar!
Ha air guitars....Bill & Ted FTW!!
http://www.youtube.com/watc... (5:22) amazing what people forget...but then,kinect is all new with gameplay never seen before....
The video in the article shows a little more advanced programming than the one you posted a link to. The guitar isn't a picture that sits there; it tilts. Just sayin'.
I guess when you make something that is forgetful that is exactly what happens...it gets forgotten. Well at least the video was helpful...we finally get to see what you look like. Do you really have anything better to do than troll all the positive Kinect articles? Obssessive behavior is not healthy. While your looking for all this material...find out for us what happens when you kick directly at the camera with Move...anything?
I don't think he was wholeheartedly trolling,he's show that too many people dismiss the eye toy and ps eye as nothing more than a web cam ,while it is ,the way Sony's R&D made it prove it was the kinect of it's day.the eye toy was running on the ps2 not a pc or 360 and any game made for it was always going to be limited.
the difference is the kid has to move his hands to correspond with the static image of the guitar. with kinect, the game is reacting to the person's movements. so the person can move and the game has to take note of that.
