The Future: Microsoft Demos A Kinect-Driven Armchair

April 13th, 2011 04:31 admin Leave a comment Go to comments

The Kinect has already powered countless awesome hacks but even a motion-controlled mini humanoid isn’t in the same room as this Microsoft-built armchair. The MIX11 crowd pleaser was built using the upcoming Kinect PC SDK that opens up development over Visual Basic, C++, C#.

The chair itself is powered just by hand motions — even reclining — and feature omnidirectional wheels for smooth rolling. Right now it’s just a proof of concept, but Microsoft will release the chair’s source code with the SDK for further tomfoolery.
