    there is some tutorials out there and good software which lets you to simply key bind movements so left arm 90degrees to the side == F etc...
    Both feet of ground by 1inch == x 5inch ==z .

    Really easy to use ill post the tutorail link up when im at home, basically install a framework for it and some drivers.

    i saw there were guides, saw the windows 7 guide to getting the framework and drivers installed. looking at the videos its like someone who created a 3d map of their room and could move around it and see themselves, or the person who made himself into like a stone man.....things like that i'd like to mess about with but im guessing its not a case of "install/play"

    That's only because smarter people did it before them and made it free.

    Reverse engineering [with a slight upgrade] is probably easier for them than making something new.

    sorry for Zombie post! but these Kinect hacks are just awsome!

    I really see many educational possibilities here. Already they are working on automatic sign language recognition!
