Previously, Elliott Woods used Kinect
to (sort of) bring the hadouken into the real world. Now, modder "demize2010" has gone the other way, bringing gesture controls into Street Fighter IV
. Using Kinect and the FAAST
software, he's mapped Ryu and Ken's moves to specific gestures, so that the game character punches when he punches, throws a fireball when he pantomimes throwing a fireball, and so on.
Basically, it's what we all thought the Sega Activator
would be. If you'd like to try it out yourself -- and you have a copy of Street Fighter IV
for PC, of course -- you can find a file with the specific key bindings on the Kinect Hacks
