Kinect used to shoot music video

Microsoft Xbox Kinect and custom programming used to film music video clip

Dan Nixon and Don Jones recently shot a video for the band Echo Lake, featuring its song Young Silence. The video itself is pretty cool, and seems to fit the song's almost dream-like sound well. But the most impressive part? It was filmed using a Microsoft Kinect.

Of all the Kinect hacks we've seen in recent months, this one is probably one of the most artistic. Dan and Don shot the entire video using a Microsoft Kinect and various custom Cinder-based apps. According to Dan's Vimeo page, it took seven weeks of work to finish the video.

Not bad for a hacked US$300 gaming accessory, eh?

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
