Halloween Hack: Kinect Enabled Portrait of Vigo the Carpathian


In an excellent homage to Ghostbusters II, Eric used Processing and a Kinect to create a Vigo portrait with eyes that follow you as you pass by. With a little Photoshop help from his coworkers, Eric created this interactive display in just one day for his company’s Halloween-themed open house. It looks like a lot of fun, but just remember, “he is Vigo! You are like the buzzing of flies to him!” [via Hack A Day]
