Exclamation Best Kinect Hack (For A Game) So Far!
This is World Of Warcraft controlled pretty much perfectly it seems (I don't know for sure as I've never played it) with Kinect! Big GrinInteresting and very simple control method for moving, simply leaning forward and backward to move forwards and backwards and using the left hand to turn left and right.

RE: Best Kinect Hack (For A Game) So Far!
This is exactly what I am interested in! Thanks for posting!
Holy smokes! Check out this site! http://people.ict.usc.edu/~suma/faast/videos.html
They have multiple examples of using their app on different PC games. I have already e-mailed them asking how long it will be before custom mapping of gestures is in as one of their features. I am so stoaked to see that someone was working on this.

WoW has a lot of grinding. So I don't know if Kinect would be a good application. I doubt you could be doing WoW stuff for a few hours straight. Plus, how would you handle all the spells and commands that you need to do?

Hmm... I could play with Kinect for an hour and then continue to "grind" using my 360 controller and chatpad sitting on my butt after I get tired I guess. Why not? I don't play WoW but I'd do it that way.

In regards to handling all the spells and commands. How is that done now? Hotkeys correct? Just assign specific gestures to hotkeys on your keyboard. Done.

I do play a MMO called Darkfall... well, actually haven't played in 6 months but will play again. If I can personally scan-in gestures and map them to keys, I am going to go crazy with this. I'm going to try and make my movements as lifelike as possible. I imagine this would increase immersion dramatically and in the process, burn some calories. Cool

At the top of my head, I'm guessing performing spells with different armgestures. SmileAnd that's pretty cool and possible.

Or spells could be done using voice commands.

I don't get it....how could someone possibly say Dance Revolution or Dance Party 2 is better then Dance Central? That's like saying, canned chicken is better then roasted chicken. Have they even played Dance Central?

Has voice use for Open-Kinect been shown? I don't think we have seen a demo using the mic on the Kinect sensor yet. I hope it is possible though.
