It all started with an email that I – naturally – ignored from my CEO, saying he was fiddling with unofficial MacOS X drivers for the Kinect ’cause he saw some post around and he was all hyped up.
Of course after a few minutes there was some photo on his Facebook page about him going to buy a Kinect (before even having the drivers up and running, I add).
I didn’t give much importance to it until I came to work the next day to find our CTO dancing and jumping like he was on drugs.
Seeing a Kinect pointed directly to him made me realize he hadn’t just lost his mind.
So where’s Unity3D in all this?
Take a look at the video and tell me what do you think:
Of course the drivers-fiddling doesn’t make it a mainstream solution, but there are many uses for something like this, from motion capture to museums/installations/public exhibitions and whatnot. And drivers are getting better and better, and let’s not forget, it’s all completely legal (hey I wouldn’t be posting this otherwise).
