Self Projector - 3D Capture Overlay Using Processing

Just stumbled across a cool little hack that uses Processing and a Kinect to overlay a digital "shadow" onto a live performer or user. The developer is projecting live Kinect date being pumped through his Processing sketch using Daniel Shiffmans's OpenKinect library onto a TransScreen. Someone at the helm can control different effects that the sketch can produce and cycle through them in order to create a very dynamic visual effect that can be changed while the subject continues to move around.

The video is a just a proof of concept but I'm sure this sort of technique will be used quite frequently. Check it out below
