I just had to stop integrating people's code long enough to actually make the damn blog post. The evil looks like this: Now, usually when we talk about sex toy control interfaces, we need hardware. Due to the close contact of the hand with the body, possibly with some inanimate object in between, there will still have to be some calibration and thresholding to figure out exactly where the genitalia versus the hand versus the surrounding body parts are.Not only that, there's an open source, cross platform driver set available so you can do whatever your perverted little heart wants with this poor piece of future, thus continuing the human condition of "not being able to have nice things." (Full disclosure: Some of the code in those drivers is my fault, as is the code integration.) But, for those of you have haven't read up yet, here's a quick kinect overview. Masturbation and general self-manipulation is something that's out of the kinect's normal operating procedure, but I'm sure we'll figure something out. The above picture is actually from logitech's quickcam avatar suite, but this is so happening on kinect like so ASAP it's not even funny.It's with a sigh, then, that Microsoft addresses the recent Thri XXX video that shows Kinect being used as a tool for virtual arousal."This isn't the first example of a technology being used in ways not intended by its manufacturer," Microsoft accepted, speaking to the LA Times, "and it won't be the last." "Microsoft did not authorise or license its technology for this use.
One clever sausage knocked-up a Minority Report-style demonstration that we duly dribbled over.The company made use of Open Kinect's libfreenect open source Kinect driver to allow a blurry-faced individual to control the camera and navigate a couple of creepy looking disembodied virtual hands around the body of a virtual girl – it look like Thing from the Addams Family is partaking in some non-family oriented entertainment.Aside from the significant creepiness factor, you'd have to wonder whether Thri XXX's games aren't better suited to a controller with some force feedback capabilities – something the Kinect interface obviously lacks.Note: Just as we were about to publish this story the video was removed from You Tube "as a violation of You Tube's policy on nudity or sexual content." We count those who didn't get to see the video as lucky.We had this feature on xbox 360 now we have a1080p camera i think it would be cool to take ya own gamer pic and if you get flagged for any inappropiate picture suspend account as microsoft sees fit and ban account from ever adding a picture of any kind through kinect..Although the company has this base covered through its Real Touch-like Vstroker and Fleshlight peripherals.
