Another great use for the Kinect has been discovered. A new cheap way to capture motion has been discovered thanks to Microsoft’s Kinect. Instead of having to spend thousands to buy expensive motion capturing software and cameras, developers can now use the Kinect to records motions. Models can now be easliy animated to match human movements such as the combine soldier shown in the picture above. Using the Source Engine, the developers of this new method have animated a soldier to wave by mapping the models movements to the movements of the person who was captured. Soon there will be a cheap way for developers to easliy capture motion.
