Kinect for the Web Through Javascript –

I cannot keep up and won’t try to keep up with these kinect hacks, after this one. Nice though to hear Microsoft say (via pcmag) they are happy for the ‘modding’ community to use the usb connection as long as they don’t interfere with the kinect software itself. Interesting though, that you don’t need a PC or an XBox, a Mac will do.
I think this is very cool but I am easily impressed these days.

Fluid Interfaces Group have developed an open-source Chrome extension that makes it possible for Javascript to talk to the Kinect. It’s called DepthJS. This means that web sites can provide custom interfaces to everyone with a Kinect and the DepthJS extension installed without requiring them to install any new software. Check out the video:
