As we saw by the recent poll on Games Alfresco, the Kinect is the biggest thing in augmented reality right now. Even since my last review of Kinect, there have been many new innovations. Using Kinect as a real time green screen is becoming an easy reality and fast. Dustin O’Connor has transformed his room into a smoky psychedelic head space. I can only imagine that this setup will become the norm in tripped out raves.
The Kinect also has possibilities as an indie movie special effects tool. Dustin alludes to this possibility:
I could see a bunch of indie type cg / video movie and effects being made with this camera. the kinect may not be as cheap as a can of green paint but defiantly does produce a similar result without the mess.
