Now that the device has been hacked to hell and back, open-source drivers make it possible for Kinect’s gesture sensors to get really, really dirty.
And Kyle Machulis, who is considered one of the world’s experts on sex and digital toys and games, said he’s impressed with how quickly the Kinect community has taken the new device and advanced it for adult purposes.
“The Kinect is obviously a natural technology for this kind of usage, since the ‘hands-free’ approach means that the user’s hands are available for other actions, be it manipulating the game, or themselves–or, in this case, possibly both at the same time,” Machulis told CNET. “I’m impressed with the quick development turnaround for getting new controls into their engine like this, especially using resources from the open-source community.”
This can’t be what Microsoft meant with their “You are the controller” marketing slogan for Kinect.
