Microsoft Kinect Hacked

Microsoft Kinect is hacked for work with multitouch interface.Someone has taken the open source driver and plugged the Kinect into his own multitouch UI “TISCH” software library and it supports the Wiimote as an input…….

Kinect is naturally a lot more complicated, but there’s also a lot of potential here, and we can’t wait to see what people come up with. Florian Echtler took that open source driver and hooked the Kinect into his own multitouch UI “TISCH” software library (which actually supports the Wiimote as an input already, funny enough). The result is a bit of MS Surface-style multitouch picture shuffling and zooming, but it uses full body tracking instead of touchscreen input, of course. Well, libfreenect has also now been ported over to OS X by Theo Watsononce you’re done admiring your IR-rendered visage on your shiny Apple-built hardware, scrounge yourself up a working Linux box.
