Kinect Hacking For The Environmentally Conscious
A new hack tracks movement within a room to automate home lighting.
The flood waters of Kinect hacks haven’t really ceased since the scene took off in a big way last November.
A Youtube user by the alias of Nitrogen has demonstrated how the affordances of the Kinects sensing capacity can be used in an innovative manner. He uses the Kinect’s ability to track a person within a room to automate his home lighting set up.
This hack offers massive potential for energy saving automation and also illustrates that the Kinnect provides a way for ‘smart homes‘ to become a DIY reality.
