More Kinect hacking fun

We’ve already shown how Microsoft’s new toy Kinect is easy to hack into: you only have to take a look at the chaps at MIT who programmed it to become a motion sensor controller for their PC for proof of that. However, we hadn’t seen much in the way of hacks relating to games – until now, that is.

Some smartypants has managed to get the Kinect to work as controller for his old Super Mario Bros. games, which is something that will delight nerds everywhere. It’s not exactly the smoothest gaming experience that you’ve ever seen in your life (in fact it’s almost entirely useless as a controller for plaformers), but you’d have to have a heart of stone not to love this.
