Hacking with gestures in a 3D space is now possible, with Kinectasploit (a mashup of Metasploit and Kinect with OpenNi, in a Blender-made environment). (via Slashdot)

The video is apparently the best visual demonstration until the official videos are available from Def Con 19.

As a Youtube commentator pointed out - fun but pointless.

I'm looking forward to finally being able to ack into a custom cyberspace deck that projects my disembodied consciousness into the consensual hallucination that is the matrix.

That has nothing on this use of Kinect. Nothing does.

So you're using gestures to select command line operations? That's it?

It's the fucking matrix from neuromancer, what else do you want?

One day I will write a VS 2010 plugin to support the kinnect. Figure out some gestures for Start Debugging, Step Into, Step Over and Detach All. That will cut my keyboard use in half.

I'm already doing that using a device I call a "keyboard".

I skipped this presentation in favor of laying quietly on the floor in the chillout room and dreaming of a plane out of Vegas. Coworker of mine went to it, said it was, yeah, kind of pointless, but cute. I kind of want to get a Kinect and play around with interfacing it to my text editor or something...
