The Kinect has become the all-in-one sensor bar of choice for modders everywhere. The ability for the Kinect to do facial and gesture recognition, sensing 3D under any ambient light condition, combined with a rapidly expanding hacker tools, has made it indispensable for true AR.
While the Kinect Hacks site has been documenting the every aspect of the accelerating progress, I’m just interested in the applications for augmented reality. This one caught my eye today as the implications reminded me of one of my favorite dystopia films – The Running Man. The resolutions and seamless adjustments are decades away, but it’s fun to imagine anyway.
