Kinect hack: Minecraft statues (now with animation!)

Building upon the previous Kinect hack that allows you to scanify yourself into MineCraft, this latest update allows you to scale said model and, even better, now supports animations for up to three seconds. Imagine it: your faithful recreation of BioShock can now have an actual moving, talking head of Andrew Ryan greeting you upon entry into Rapture. Who wouldn't want that?

Or you could just tease your cat with a laser pointer like in the video demonstration past the break, we guess.
