Kinect MIDI controller (KMIDIC)

November 27, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Microsoft’s Xbox 360 add-on Kinect has been a big hit in the videogame world, and its amazing technology has been exploited to create a movement-based MIDI controller by resourceful hacker Ben X Tan.

MIDI contoller using the Kinect.
Coded in C#.net using this: http://codelaboratories.com/nui

Very hacky ugly, yucky, alpha prototype, source code available here:

Next project is making a version of pmidic that uses Kinect. Then, you can control Ableton Live or any other MIDI software or hardware with you limbs. Isn’t that amazing!!!
