New Kinect Hack Lets You Become Invisible
Posted by James Newton
Not just socially speaking either
Kinect makes loads of cool things appear on-screen, but what about making them _dis_appear? Turns out it can do that too, with another enterprising coder coming up with this "optical camouflage" hack for PC making you invisible.
As well as containing some of the nicest jazz we've heard in a game video for ages, the video shows off a neat shimmer effect that makes someone disappear before your very eyes. Although the coder doesn't mention how it was made possible, we imagine it's a composite of an empty background shot and some clever coding wizardry, but don't quote us on it.
It gets good from about a minute in. What interesting applications can you think of for this nifty little piece of code?
