First Kinect Motion Capture Series - Under the HUD
Under the HUD is what looks to be the first motion capture web series created using the Kinect. It was made using the OpenNI and Brekel Kinect hacks, as well as Autodesk's MotionBuilder and Maya software. Although the animation isn't completely fluid or elegant, it's not bad either. The important point is that, as Fast Company points out, until recently you needed to spend thousands (not the millions claimed by FC) to do this.
Episodes are coming soon; you can follow @thwackers on Twitter and visit the Thwackers website for updates.
