Do you love telekinesis? You will like this new project from Microsoft Kinect team. Microsoft tech evangelist Mike Taulty showed the ability to move a ball without touching it, using only simple hand gestures, thanks to Kinect for Windows sensor and SDK.
Microsoft is thinking of applying this technique in various useful ways in the future.
Imagine, for instance, how much more engaged a person could be with a digital display in a shopping center or public space if they could manipulate products or objects themselves. Imagine this simple application applied to a museum installation, an advertising display in a retail store, or a gaming arcade. We may not be able to control objects with our minds, but Kinect for Windows gives us the next best thing.
