Homebrewer develops PC Kinect photo app

Just a couple of days after the release of an open-source Kinect driver, coder floemuc has developed a proof-of-concept PC application for the sensor. In the video after the break, floemuc uses Kinect to track his hand movements, allowing him to manipulate and resize photos. He hasn't released the software, unfortunately. "I thought I'd get the mandatory picture-browsing stuff done," he said in the YouTube description, "so it's out of the way and everybody can focus on more interesting things."

It's nice to find out that people are thinking about using Kinect to do the cool Minority Report stuff, instead of just the gross ad-personalization bits.
