Yet more Kinect hacking fun

Ok, so we know that over the weekend we claimed that we’d found the coolest Kinect hack yet when some geek made himself invisible through the motion sensor accessory, but really, that was small fry compared to what we’re showing you today: a Kinect being utilized as a 3D radar for an autonomous flying machine. Take a look at the video below, it’s actually quite scary.

What we really like, apart from the Terminatoresque visuals from inside the Kinect, is the fact that the radar detects random obstacles and pauses from its course until the obstacle is removed. The flight course, which has been pre-programmed, isn’t especially complicated, but it’s still a hell of a feat. Check it out.
