Skeleton Tracking

For Computational Cameras, we are supposed to come up with 10 ideas for skeleton tracking using the Kinect. These are the ideas I came up with.

1) 2-person horse costume – apparently this requires 2 Kinects 🙁

2) controlling a puppet

3) using the human body to make architectural structures (“look, I’m the Eiffel Tower!”)

4) play air guitar/accordion/drums

5) turn a conga line of people into a train

6) multi-body part drawing apparatus (each joint/appendage could be a tool, like pencil or paint)

7) a game of Simon Says

8) 2-person ballroom dancing teacher

9) jump up and down to make explosions (wider arms and legs make for bigger mushroom clouds)

10) direct an airplane landing
