As an interesting exercise teams had to create an interface and then hand it off to be built by another team. Peter Darche and I created the original interface for an airplane simulation using only your body (see below), and the guys took it and turned it up to 11.
In Robbie’s words: Airplane simulation is a webGL game that gives a user the ability to fly an airplane with their body. As a user moves his/her arms and torso around they have full access to roll, pitch, and yaw the plane. The game uses Processing to access Kinect data and then sends it to a node.js server. On the client-side – we’re using chrome to render a webGL canvas using the Three.js library where the movement of the plane is adjusted based on the socket data coming in from the Kinect.
Side note: Pill Popper came out of this same exercise.
