Kinect Kart

One last kinect project before the weekend is over.

Controlling mario kart with Microsoft kinect.

I use the depth information to detect the position of both of my hands as well as the position of my leg. These inputs are then mapped to keyboard keys to be used as input in other applications. In this case an SNES emulator.

Apologize for how poorly I play, its quite late, so not much time to practice with this new input method :)
- Will post another video tomorrow once I have had more practice.
