silly kinect thing from Kevin Atkinson on Vimeo.

I got a kinect last week (the first day they went on sale in New Zealand, as a matter of fact!). This is a first little hack to get my feet wet.

[Update]For them what's innerested, here's the source.

[Update 2]This effect was featured on New Scientist TV!

[Update 3]A few download links on the site are broken since I recently got some new hosting. I'll have them fixed in a day or two.

CONNY GROENEWEGEN CATWALK SHOW 2010 from Duy Quoc Vo on Vimeo.

Duy Quoc Vo is a very gifted fashion photographer based in Amsterdam and London. He used my wobble effect in this seductive, surreal film he created for Dutch Designer Conny Groenewegen's recent catwalk show in Amsterdam. Both are exciting talents to watch.

I had to substantially rewrite the effect to support offline rendering at HD resolutions, and it was a bit of a challenge to get it ready in time, but I'm very glad it all worked out. My friends will be once again tickled that I worked on a fashion event, since I usually dress like a flood victim.
