Kinect Hack - Recording 3D

    As you very well know the Kinect is a camera device that you connect to your XBOX 360 and start jumping around in front of, the Kinect records your movements in real time and sends them to the XBOX which then takes those movements and uses them in game play. Aside from proving that most people will always act like an idiot when a camera is pointed at them, the Kinect also doubles as a really good time with some super supremely neat-o capabilities. Of course the second that the Kinect hit the store shelves there were already people attempting to hack into it to expand its uses.

   This particular hack doesn't appear to be entirely useful as of right now, but is pretty dang cool. This hack utilizes the two 3D Depth sensors, and one RGB Camera that the Kinect has built onto it. Go ahead and watch the video to see how it works (I know it looks kinda weird at first, but stick with it, it gets better).
