Your “Hacked Kinect Does A Cool Thing” Video of the Day

Hacked Kinect: It does puppets.  It took us a second view to really notice, but the peripheral is picking up the performer’s movements with great fidelity.  It’s just a bit tricky to tell because of what we assume is processing lag.  Presumably that will get worked out soon, and then we can all look forward to a new Sesame Street character who teaches kids about being safe in virtual environments.

What?  Wasn’t that the first idea that popped into your head, too?

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
