At first blush, using Kinect
to control Minecraft
might seem like a great idea. This latest Kinect hack
, created by YouTube user leparlon
, allows players to look and walk in Minecraft
. It certainly looks neat, but we can already think of a problem: We're really not looking forward to using our hands to chop down trees for hours at a time
. Just think about it: You're using physical motions to control a game solely about manual labor
. Maybe leparlon's next Kinect project will hack in a few turbo buttons.
