Another day, another 50 Kinect hacks. This one shows your virtual bones while you move around. Amazing.

We can’t actually think of any practical use for this – aside from teaching small children anatomy – so we’re going to say it’s “a bit rubbish”. Try harder, Technical University of Munich.

“What shall we do to show our technical prowess with this fun, hip, gaming peripheral?”

“Let’s make a thing that shows your bones.”

Look below. That’s what happened. A Dutch dude this morning showed real-time motion capture in his bedroom. That’s cool. Raise your Kinect-hacking game, Germany.
