We have featured many amazing Microsoft Kinect motion sensor modifications and hacks here on Geeky Gadgets over the past 12 months since its launch. But this Kinect BeatWheel adds an innovative way to create music using the Kinect device and moving your arms to control the sounds. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
Its creators explain:
“A sample is chopped up into eighth note slices (or any increment) and arranged like a clock face around you. The currently playing slice is controlled by your left hand’s position in space. This allows you to remix a loop by waving your hand around. The red dot indicates your hand’s position, the green bar indicates the currently playing slice, and the blue bar moves at the tempo of the song to serve as a guide.”
