DieTempete Kinect Dance Party

DieTempete Kinect Dance Party

Over at KinectHacks, DieTapete used the Kinect to spice up his Christmas party. The Kinect projects the image of the people dancing in darkness, but replaced with psychedelic colors.

Critique

It looks like he just projects the image on the wall, with the people replaced with colors. I would like to see this projected onto the dancers themselves, covering each person in light. You could also use different colors for different people, and combine their colors if they started dancing together! This confirms that the Kinect works fine in a really dark environment when picking out people. It suggest that it could be used in many dark situations, but I really like the idea of using it at parties.
