The tech behind the Xbox 360's new camera controller, Kinect, is now being used for an impressive—most impressive—new feat: the ability to capture 3D images, transmit them over the internet and display them in holographic form.
Hopefully some of these cool hacks can be implemented into future games, i got a kinect couple weeks ago and ill be regretting it until some good titles come out
There are several good games out for kinect. If none of them interests you, why did you get it at that time in the first place?
same reason millions of others like them did... HYPE.
ahahah no ive had some fun with it no doubt and mostly bought it cuz a bunch of my buds were getting it, but as of now there arnt any games that have me coming back, but some of the tgs announed games definately look promising
That's pretty cool, but at the same time, very poor in its application. Obviously the hard/software would have to come on quite a way to obtain decent results, but still, not bad seeing its using a cheap peripheral (cheap in terms of tech).
for 2011 2 frames on apersonal hologram is good
This is running at 15fps, 2fps was soooo last year.
But it's going to be a less complete image than the 16 camera approach. Now if you put together 3 kinect cameras spaced 120 degrees apart you should be able to capture a full 360 degree image. You could manage with just 2 but it won't work quite as well.
Pretty cool, but I wish MS would try my idea that can work. Take 6 kinects or Kienct like device, set them so they do interferer with eachother.Have a 3D hologram projector display images and BAM you pretty much have a holo deck. I am aware this would cost an ass ton but it is 100% possible to do.
Holographic, LOL. Looked like a red mess on a screen. Kinects dire camera resolution will never produce descent holographics.
Sony has real holograms YOUTUBE search it. god it was like 2 or 3 years ago but i guess it never happened and no not the bad @ss water dragon but a real hologram
Dunno why, but that hologram looks god damn creepy. Looks like something you might pick up in a ghost investigation o.O
Thats the emporer/chanceler palpatine from star wars -_-
NOOOO! The one in the video. The red one.
Man, bring on the generic internet haters. I think this is interesting and borderline cool. The Kinect wasn't even made for this purpose and yet people are figuring out ways to make it work. Sure, it doesn't look like the stuff we see on movies that have special effects budgets, but it's a start. Think about the possibilities. They have been doing this for a while and students of MIT have been doing it too, but using a consumer level video game device to do it, is something entirely different.
Bring on the mindless cheerleaders.
Are you talking to me? Seriously? I think someone needs to look at the person's comment history before they make bs assertions. I don't even own a Kinect or an Xbox360. It's called being fair-minded.
the hacks look so old. its like watching eye toy demos back in the day.
wow the PC sure can do a lot for kinect
or the kinect can do a lot for the PC?...ahh think about that one.
So so according to your logic and mine kinect is best for the PC and not the 360.
