Microsoft Kinect makes Google’s April 1st joke look old

Some of you might have looked at Google’s April 1st joke on controlling mail as a funny joke but while their technology didn’t work (hence the joke) some researchers at the University of Southern California (USC) took it and implemented the joke using Microsoft’s Kinect. The result is pretty amazing (check out the video below). It shows how easily the cool Kinect technology can be adapted and while this specific application is pretty silly, Kinect can be applied to more serious business needs and support security related applications. I hope that the Flexible Action and Articulated Skeleton Toolkit (FAAST) used by USC will bring us many more fun and useful applications based on Kinect.
