Yesterday we saw the awesome ‘Minority Report’ Kinect hack, today we have another one, this time in the form of an air guitar, which was created by Chris O’Shea.
Chris created this fun hack using a Microsoft Kinect, with c++m openFrameworks and openCV and some drivers to get the Kinect to detect himself playing an air guitar.
In 2007 I attempted to make a simple Air Guitar prototype using a stereo camera (watch video). Unfortunately it didn’t work very well.
Now that the much anticipated Xbox Kinect camera was out and opening up by the way, I wanted to port this demo to explore what the potential of interactive music games could be in the future & also just to experiment with the Kinect. So here is the outcome so far…
You can see full details of how it was done over on Chris’s website.
