Kinect + Minecraft = Full-Motion 3D Statues
We saw this little Kinect hack in an earlier stage a while back, but didn’t post it. I’m posting this update now, because it’s just too nuts to pass up.

The details of the project, which basically imports still data from the Kinect and rebuilds it with blocks in Minecraft, can be found here. The movies were put together by saving, rendering, and then pasting together multiple frames. “Phase 3” is underway, though, and may automate that process.
