Gamersmint: You can now control XBMC with Kinect hand gestures. Isn’t that awesome? Sure is.
man i wanna buy this :S
seriously this is getting stupid developers are never going to use kinect like this because they dont have a hacked kinect!
There aren't enough R-words to Really Relay to you how Ridiculously Retarded you sound. Rebuttle
@alien 626 lol this was a stupid comment.
actually what alien626 is saying isnt stupid at all. its not that we will never see this tech on consoles. its just that as simple as this is to get working on linux, windows, max os x and its been rumored to be unlocked as well on ps3. we have yet to see any of these hacks working on a 360 console. ms removed a processor from kinect to get it cheaper and a lot of functions that have been available since day one release of kinect working on pc's are yet not available on 360. I think this is a window to what can be done currently on pc's and in the future on consoles but nothing yet outside of kinectimals and joy ride and kinect sports. dance central is really silhouette tracking, meaning there is a box/image and you can position yourself in that box and bam recognized, same as with kung fu live, dance central 2 is rumored to have playstation eye support. some of the kinect sports stuff is just anti grav on eyetoy.. just better. so its not that kinect doesnt work, its that it works on everything except the 360. just like the 360, expect updated models of kinect to come out.. the true experience will come from the next 360. this is just a beta test.
R- is the 18th letter.
Actually Raoh, it does actually have the processor in it: http://www.eetimes.com/elec... I think MS will enable the usage of this chip in later updates as time goes on( just like the HANA video upscaler chip that was always in the 360 from the begining.)
Raoh, you have no clue. The hack's aim isn't to fully use Kinect's resources. It's to unlock it so you can use it with disallowed hardware like PC etc for homebrew. Developers are given a "developer's version" of the peripheral along with an SDK. They can do what programmers with a hacked Kinect can do. MS always "lock" their products from consumers. So in reality, alien626's comment sounds very retarded indeed.
Nice! Kinect is awesome!
ya know...I'm not seeing nor have I seen, any PS Eye/EyeToy hack videos...I wonder why if they are exactly the same as Kinect :-/ /kanyeshrug
wait a minute, are you actually spinning that and trying to make it seem like that's bad for the Eyetoy or PSeye and a plus for kinect? wow, you people that support ms are on a whole different planetary level. P/S- Oh, after reading your post again I seem to understand what you were trying to get across. Sarcasm doesn't translate too well in written form sometimes.
Because the eyetoy is about 5-6 years old. Kinect basically is the newer version of the same tech. Or would you rather the answer...... cause the 360 PWNS the PS3.
They're out there, it's just more fun for people to ridicule MS by showing how poorly they're utilizing a $150 webcam. No one is saying that PS Eye is exactly the same as Kinect either, many are just saying it can do pretty much everything Kinect can; which is true. Using a webcam to detect pixel movements can get near identical results to what Kinect does. The results in this video could be replicated with any webcam.
The point Blaze is making that all of you are ignorning is that you hear over and over that Kinect is nothing new and the same tech as Eyetoy yet you NEVER see Eyetoy hacks... That's because the Eyetoy is just a camera while the Kinect has IR tracking AND a camera which is what makes it different and why people are doing these hacks. If Kinect was just a "webcam" none of these hacks would exist. But this takes logic and when all you want to do is hate logic gets in the way.
So what the fun in all that.
i'm still wonder why we havent seen any of this "hacks" using the eyetoy?? isn't supose to do everything that kinect can do??
Actually no. The eyetoy can not sense dept. Just two dimensional planes.
thats wat they al say
best lol this seriously retarded
Lol it looked good but the mario hack has to be thevbest ive seen so far.
this is lame when im f**** tired i dont wanna hold my hand in the air to watch some movie just use controller
Kinect should be able to do this shit from the start
Kinect can do this from the start. On the 360. This is the exact same way you navigate the movies in zune video.
Derp herp, my nintendo wii could do this much better, it also has buttons
now the PS move can do it only with more precision and accuracy and it also has buttons
Kinect can do it without requiring you to hold a dildo!
"I HAVE THE POWER!!!"
Old news... I dont think this is a Hack, just Coding.. Netflix is working on the same thing..
does my heart heart good to see mankind getting more lazy " now if these guys find a way to turn on a console with out us touching it's over im giving kinect a go
WOW WHAT THE FUCK THESE DUM FOUNDED FEATURES ARE USELESS. EVEN THE HACKS ARE GARBAGE IT DOESNT PUT ANYTHING OF IT TO GOOD USE. PIECE OF SHIT!
You : "LOOOOOL I THINK I'M SO C()()L BECAUSE I USE CAPZ AND CURSE!!!!!111111"
Kinect + PC = cool
LOL YEA COOL FOR WHAT? VIRTUAL PORN?
All these hacks are nice and all but can they be used for gaming? Can the developers actually use all of this to make Kinect games? I am just wondering because I am not sure the developers would actually be able to utilize Kinect this way with out compromising the system.
