Microsoft have only began to scratch the surface fo what kinect can do.
So it's officially supported but costs twice as much? That's not very nice How long you think before the SDK is hacked to support the X360 version?
And the four Kinects at once sounds pretty interesting.
I have seen a few videos around that siggest that windows 7 was hacked to support 4 at once, and they used kinect to take pictures from all angles and then it was converted into a 3D model of the room. Which was amazing, I might have to try and dig it up.
I've seen the same thing you're talking about, I think. It was pretty interesting. They were used to construct an augmented reality of the room, in which virtual objects would interact with the depth-images the kinects produced.
Sadly I cannot find it. If anyone can please post it.
This might be it.
This was also cool
Now that it's been made and (presumably) optimized for the PC, I'm really excited to see what hackers will do with it. Anything has to be better than the current library of games.
I wonder if they would be able to integrate kinect in tablets.
...Why? You already do gestures and stuff on a tablet that's like a foot in front of you, why do you need to do gestures from a distance now?
to use it as a tv, that way you can use it for everything.
can they now hack and make kinect good ? and use it for porn games ?
Because I'd totally love a 10 inch TV?
Search for "Kinect Ivy" or something like that and your curiosity and odd fantasies will be fulfilled.
Do you have a Kinect?
What Microsoft really needs is controller support with the Kinect, aka simultaneous usage of the Kinect and a standard Xbox controller. So many problems would be solved.
I was talking to my friend about this today. Like the Star Wars Kinect demo (when the Kinect was like first announced) sounded promising. Now Star Wars Kinect looks like a shitty mini game compilation. But basically making a game where you could use the analog stick and maybe some of the bumpers on the controller to move and do some actions (jump, switch weapons, etc) and then map combat to gestures would be pretty neat. Who wouldn't get gratification out of swiping their hand like a Sith badass to throw a group of Stormtroopers across the room? I'd play it.
Side note: Firefox spell checker doesn't see "Stormtroopers" as a misspelling.
Well, they sort of added that kind of functionality to some Ghost Recon game as far as I remember - the game was played with the standard controller and you could modify your weapon and use the menus using the Kinect. Not much, but it was a start, at least.
Force Push would be way more awesome then a combo of buttons.
I guess it shows some promise on the Kinect/controller integration, but simultaneous has not yet been achieved.
But I could honestly see them re-releasing The Force Unleashed as a "Force Unleashed Kinect" or something. The game itself is pretty average but it'd be pretty fun with the Kinect. Plus the QTEs would be hilarious, nothing quite like flailing your arms to defeat a Rancor.
Yes QTEs on motion controllers are a guilty pleasure.
Unless SUDA51 is involved.
NMH was not a guilty pleasure - it was guilty of giving immense pleasure. I have to say, the two titles are really one of the most important "redeeming qualities" of the Wii for me.
Oh yes agreed. MadWorld was also a redeeming quality. I'll admit, the game probably wouldn't been as fun if it weren't for the motion controlled QTEs. Even the motion controlled combat made it fun.
NMH was just in general an awesome game and definitely a strong point of the Wii, although I never found the motion controls to be make or break. I haven't played NMH: Paradise (which I think does have non-motion controlled options) but I'd like to see how the game stacks up against the original.
But both NMH games are one of the few Wii games I own, NMH2 being one of the only games I've preordered in years (the other one being Mass Effect 3). Also the only Wii game I bought after I started pirating outside of Goldeneye 007.
Agreed, MadWorld is pretty awesome aswell and the black and white textures perfectly conceal hardware limitations. A true poem amongst rubbish - looks just as well as a "moving comic".
Personally... I don't think NMH would be as much fun without the Motion Controls. I really liked to pretend I'm swinging them katanas lol... X3
Just for those who are curious about the Ghost Recon Kinect system...
yea with sonic free riders
