The guys over at Waterloo labs have been busy again this month and combined a Microsoft Kinect controller and an old school Etch-a-Sketch to create a unique mod. The system allows you to control the Etch-a-Sketch simply by standing in front of the Kinect, allowing you to use a huge pencil or even just your hand to control the Etch-a-Sketch and draw.
Check out the video below which explains how Microsoft’s Kinect motion controller works and how the whole system was put together and created. You can view more projects by the team over on the Waterloo Labs website.
“The Kinect-a-Sketch allows you to draw on a traditional Etch-a-Sketch by drawing in mid air using an XBox Kinect, LabVIEW and an Arduino.”
