Phantom of the Kinectar!

Phantom of the Kinectar!

How cool is Kinectar? A rhetorical question mind you, but seriously you guys...seriously. Musician/Programmer Chris Vik has added another label to his name, that of conductor. In his latest video, Chris uses his Kinectar software to patch into the Melbourne Town Hall Organ. Since the organ received an overhaul in the 90's, it's now able to produce MIDI notes which open the appropriate pipe valve, perfect for Kinectar integration.

openFrameowkrs MIDI Air Guitar

Rock out with your Kinect out with this kick ass air guitar project using openFrameworks and the ofxKinect OpenNI libraries. By positioning your hands in a certain way, you can scale the chord progression by moving one hand either closer or further away from the other. To sum things up, we're talking high tech, bleeding edge air guitar awesomeness.

Check out the video to see what I'm talking about. You can actually produce some pretty bad ass sounding chords using this MIDI integrated openFrameworks project.
