Kinect hack shows how awesome an Ultraman game could be

0

Another day, another Kinect hack that shows more interesting things than any of the official games have come up with. This one uses the fancy camera's body tracking to put you into a theoretical videogame starring classic Japanese superhero Ultraman.

Produced by a dedicated Japanese nerd, uses "augmented reality" tech to overlay a classic Ultraman costume onto live footage of the player, and triggers the costumed hero's iconic attacks when certain poses are struck.You can even see the special effects "interacting" with other objects on screen, bouncing off of chairs and walls. Watch it through to the end, the stunt he performs is fantastic.

And if you're not into Ultraman (clearly identifying you as a soulless, inhuman creature), this stuff could theoretically apply to all manner of concepts, from Godzilla games to giant robot games. Hell, think of an Earth Defense Force title where you play as the big aliens! Perhaps a Kinect-based version of Robot Alchemic Drive or a G Gundam fighting game? Yes, now you want it!
