Microsoft Kinect Hacked to Create Lightsaber Tracking

The Kinect has once again been made to work as something different to what Microsoft originally intended. This time, the Kinect is used to track a broom handle and with that tracking, displays a lightsaber blade on the screen along with the noises a Star Wars weapon would make.

The Kinect Hack comes from a guy named Yan this time. The software tracks the wooden stick and then real time software makes it glow on screen.

According to the developer, the next part of the project is to create a flying droid on screen that fires lasers at the user… mix that with a blindfold and you have the perfect jedi training tool.

Check out the video below to see it in action.
