Kinect is finally useful

9 posts in this topic

MIT created something interesting, it's called inFORM and it actually uses Kinect! (Finally kinect is useful)

 

inFORM is a Dynamic Shape Display that can render 3D content physically, so users can interact with digital information in a tangible way. inFORM can also interact with the physical world around it, for example moving objects on the table's surface. Remote participants in a video conference can be displayed physically, allowing for a strong sense of presence and the ability to interact physically at a distance. inFORM is a step toward our vision of Radical Atoms: tangible.media.mit.edu/vision/

I really don't think corporations or companies are going to go out and buy an Xbox One for it's Kinect video conference capabilities...might be my opinion but I believe same goes for gamers. Sure the technology may be awesome compared to Kinect 1.0, but it's all just gimmicky features that will have that WOW factor for a good day or so then forgotten.

I think that's actually the Kinect 1.0, not the new Kinect. (I could be 100% wrong though)

Maybe, if you want your sandwich made out of rectangles :P

It does have really useful hardware. The Kinect that is. But I dont think its in the right market in all honesty. I've seen lots of instances of Kinect 1 being used for eye detection, face re-creation and a lot of cool medical stuff. But never ONCE have I seen it been used for gaming in a cool way. Probably wont ever.

I'm not a fan of Kinect but I think Kinect 2.0 has a lot of promise with fitness programs which it's already demonstrated...but it could be improved. If It can really read your heart rate then that is a must and if it can turn your form and intensity into a game, exercise would be more fun.
