This is seriously awesome. A new hack developed by hackers Emily Gobeille and Theo Watson has enabled the Kinect to be used for interactive puppet shows. The hack, a video of which you can find below, basically inputs human gestures and makes use of this input to improvise the movements of an animated character.

What’s more impressive than the demonstration itself is the fact that the whole hack was developed in under 24 hours. This just goes to tell you the power of such a tool. Imagine what can be done with Kinect’s technology in a month! And imagine where we would be in a year’s time.

Do you see more such use-cases for Kinect? Why don’t you tell us in the comments.
