Kinect finally put to good use

We have yet another Kinect hack for you; or at least, another Kinect-related hack. Clever bods at a company called KinEmote have hacked Windows 7 software to play everyone’s favourite mobile game Angry Birds through the Kinect. Pretty cool, no?

Unfortunately it’s not used exactly how you would usually use the motion control device, as you need a Wii-style stick to control the cursor. Despite that it works quite well, as you can see in the video below, in which some fella makes a complete hash of two levels in a row. We’d definitely do much better, thanks to our AB addiction – not that it’s helping our work much.
