Augment Reality using Projector and Kinect is HERE!

http://www.geek.com/articles/geek-pick/kinect-powered-augmented-reality-sandbox-2012059/

A larger scale of the type of stuff this space has been working on.  Personally I have put my efforts here as well.

Something I had been working on though, use a portable version like sixth sense with a Pico projector and a two camera IR Kinect set (though now just a Kinect for Windows Device). This is great to see that this technology is taking off.

My aspiration is to use “near feature” on Kinect for Windows and Elevation controls skeleton, depth and color to augment to replace the Single camera on Six Sense device.  The device then just becomes a projector (though still reversed) for easy mirror movement (or not) when we keep windows 8 augmented reality devices. My idea is that  the hand movements will work rather than fingers for now, like two big texting thumbs and same xbox left and right).  Depth and skeleton makes this easy.  Though as soon as possible I can tell when the fingers are closer or further away so they can tell when one is depressed.
