Kinect Hacked to Play Super Mario Bros.

(Video Link)

YouTube user yankeyan altered his Kinect gaming interface so that he could play Super Mario Bros. by mimicking Mario's movements:

I programmed it to recognize my motions and passed the virtual button presses to the NES emulator. I could have placed a simulated keypad right in front of me that I can press with my hands, but I thought full body gestures were more in the spirit of Kinect. Of course, Mario isn't designed to be played like this, so this is really really hard.

The main problem here is the lag. Look at the mirror and the screen. There's a big lag between his movements and the moment they're captured, so that's why it's so hard to play. If he could move mario in perfect real time, it would be easier.

However, this is still really impressive.
