XBOX Kinect hacked for 3D hologram.... ish.

Secondly and on a completely different plane of reality, heres YouTube user Okreylos who has hacked the Microsoft Kinect already, after it only being on the market for a matter of hours, to create a "3D" image by combining the color and depth from the camera's sensors. Essentially he has managed to take what the sensor records and put the image back together.

Obviously, as he says, the camera is only looking in one POV, so the shadowy dark parts of the image are what the sensor cannot pick up. This is just the tip of the iceberg of something that is apparently just $56 dollars worth of parts & that is only a few geek steps away from producing full holographic pictures and real Minority Report moments. The opportunities are endless...
