Kinect Virtual Reality Demo With Lightsabers and All!

The leading maker of kinect virtual reality hacks has posted another impressive demo of what is possible with the kinect and some geek ingenuity.  Kreylos has been putting out kinect hacks that deal with the virtual reality function of the device, and each one builds upon the others.  His latest features a full on virtual world where he can interact with the environment, and even other people who aren’t in the same room.

The visuals are still rudimentary, but it’s clear that the Kinect will one day lead to virtual gaming like the holo-decks from the Star Trek series.  Check out the newest VR kinect hack below.  You’ve been wanting to fight your buddy with a virtual lightsaber too…
