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’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
