What do you all want to do this week? Is there anything scheduled?
If not, I propose that we play with the freshly donated Kinect.
If you don't know, the Kinect is an Xbox accessory that provides
controller-less gameplay by using cameras and such to track a player's
movement. It has a USB connection and has already been reverse
engineered to great success within the open source community. Someone
awesome donated one to Noisebridge last night at the weekly meeting
with the condition that it never be hooked up to an xbox. Before the
meeting was over someone already had some software visualizing it's
view of the 3d world. It was really amazing.
I'd propose that we try and get it working on someone's laptop and
then brainstorm on what awesomeness might be able to achieve with it.
