I attended the NYC Hack and Tell Meetup last night and saw Lee Felarca give demonstrations of his “work in progress” Kinect hacks. Using openFrameworks, and written in C++, Lee said he was mostly just interested in learning C++ – some filters he wrote include explosions (above), alpha trails, particle emitter, and strobe. You can watch more videos over on his blog. I look forward to seeing lots more Kinect hacks at the forthcoming Detroit and NYC Maker Faires!
