Xbox Kinect Launch in Germany with Interactive Arts

Microsoft's new motion-sensor controller for xBox 360 is a game-changer - you don't need a controller anymore! Easy to use and instantly fun, Kinect gets everyone off the couch and moving, laughing and cheering. See a ball? Kick it. It's an interface you don't need to learn. Beyond it's applications in gaming, smart artists have already started using it in creating interactive art. Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect was launched in Germany with an interactive projection mapping installation by Seeper, as reported by Digital Buzz. The projection mapping installation was set at Stachus in central Munich, and featured an interactive particle game based off your movement, played out in front of hundreds of guests. Check out the video below for a taste of it. I bet we'll see much more of this in the future!
