In case the Kinect doesn't have it yet, is anyone interested in
Pin Art program for the Kinect?
The goal of this project would be to create something much like the
Fincher/Nine Inch Nails video "Only" (
The Kinect's ability to measure distance should make this program easy
write, but the need to rotate the viewpoint/perspecitive (whatever the
technical term is I can't recall) is needed. Thus, a bit of OpenGL may
required to get that similar effect from the Fincher video, which was
CGI but probably took some effort to create a Pin Art Reznor.
Also, within the month I may consider purchasing a Kinect now that I
have my own group started. Should I get the version of the Kinect
that has the power adaptor or the version that doesn't have it. I
have OpenKinect (http://openkinect.org
) installed on my netbook and by
the end of the month, I should have it on my desktop computer assuming
that Ubuntu 11.04 LTE comes out soon.
Stay tuned to my Tumblr site (http://mrhacks.tumblr.com
) to see how
that works out.
