Kinect Hacks: 'holographic' video chat

Seek sanctuary within the virtual setting of this latest Kinect hack, which uses the tech to create a real-time "holographic" person set in a virtual office space. Created by Oliver Kreylos of UC Davis, the hack uses two Kinect cameras to create the 3D representation and a Wiimote for "head tracking." The quality isn't great, but apparently there's a fix in the works.

This Kinect hack adds to other demonstrations of creativity we've seen since the peripheral launched over a month ago, which include vehicular, musical and titillating examples of what the tech can do outside of its first batch of games.
